You don't get it.

This Marine, even if he receives an "other than honorable" discharge, will have former Marines like myself looking out for him.

It's hard to explain to people who haven't served in the Marine Corps.

We're different from the other services in the way we relate to one another.

Some thirty years after I served, I still consider any Marine my brother.

That never changes.

I'm not sure why this Marine felt he should be the one member of the military who can talk $hit about his CIC for all to see on the internet and get away with it.

I served under a president whose politics I agreed with and a president whose politics I disagreed with, but I respected them both and the office they held. I would have carried out any orders either of them issued because that's what I signed up to do. There is no place for a breakdown in the chain. The military system can't function that way.

Exercising your rights will sometimes have consequences. I wish this Marine would have thought things through a little more before saying the things he said.
