   MeiDei  I heard Amazon removed the T-shirts after much ado. Didn't hear about any other items.

   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  A police officer called the station on his radio.
"I have an interesting case here. An old lady shot her husband for stepping on the floor she just mopped."
"Have you arrested the woman?"
"Not yet. The floor's still wet."

   Safetydude  The Navy has to bring charges; Captains's Mast for non-judicial(Article-15 )punishment or a General Court Martial. He broke the law, no matter the mitigation.
With those charges in his personnel jacket, regardless of outcome, his career is finished.

   Allsogreat  I hope your article is correct....I think he broke a "RULE"....not necessarily a "LAW"...there are also rules about the care and safety of those personnel under your command....

   Safetydude  I can't speak for the Navy but based on my experience in the AF a DoD Directive is 'Law'. And our AFR's were based on those directives.

The DoD doesn't write regulations. A Directive is a basis for each service to write their branch specific regulation.
If you laid AF, Army and Navy Regulations side by side they all reflect what the DoD demands.

The Navy is in a cleft stick; if they choose to not press charges they may be in defiance of a DoDD and their own regulation. If they do charge him they have to bring in a finding of not guilty and possibly expunge all records to save his career.

I agree his action was heroic and DoDD 5210.56 should be rescinded, but in the meantime the Navy has to follow the 'law' otherwise there is no law.

My point was that a career may have been jeopardized because of a heroic act.
If the Navy chooses not to charge him there is no paperwork, all is forgotten, life goes on and he will be remembered as a hero.

I'll remember him as a hero who may have risked more than his career, he may have also risked his life.

There is always wiggle room in any 'official' govt. statement.

   Allsogreat posted on Main Page The Lobby  ACTS 2:38 Conceal Carry & an Intruder.
You gotta love compassionate Christian Seniors.

A woman had just returned to her home from an evening of church services, when she was startled by an intruder.
She caught the man in the act of robbing her home of its valuables and yelled: “Stop! Acts 2:38 !”

(Repent and be Baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven. )

The burglar stopped in his tracks.

The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done.

As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar:
“Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.”
“Scripture?” replied the burglar. “She said she had an Ax and Two 38's!”

   Safetydude  I'm on both sides of this issue.
As Christian, I support her right to exercise her religious freedom and as a retired senior NCO I have to support her Supervisor and her Commanders.
LCpl Sterling had many, many avenues to deal with with this issue. One of them was not to argue with a senior NCO.
Once that starts, in order to preserve the command authority, she was bound to lose. She should have known that since as a LCpl she was in the chain of command.

I think there is more to this story...I think she wanted out and someone gave her bad advise.
I'll bet she thought she would get a 'General Discharge Under Honorable Conditions', not a BCD and she could go on her way.

I'm sure her Commander offered an 'Article 15', Nonjudicial Punishment, which she must have refused and asked for a general Court-Martial.

   Allsogreat posted on Jokes  A large group of Isis fighters in Iraq are moving down a road when they hear
a voice call from behind a sand dune: "One Marine is better than ten Isis
fighters". The Isis commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over the
dune where a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then

The voice once again calls out: "One Marine is better than one hundred Isis
"S.O.B.s". Furious, the Isis commander sends his next best 100 troops over
the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences. After 10 minutes of
battle, again silence.

The voice calls out again: "One Marine is better than a thousand Isis
fighters." The enraged Isis commander musters 1000 fighters and sends them
to the other side of the dune. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets
and cannon fire ring out as a terrible battle is fought .... Then silence.

Eventually one badly wounded Isis fighter crawls back over the dune and with
his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men... it's a
trap. There's two of them.
