This is why I have often said that it is the duty of veterans to speak for those who can't speak for themselves.

I don't understand. If you have constructive feedback, I'm ready to take notes.

SGT (Join to see) Thank you for your blog post in Command Post. I thank you raised a very good point on being "responsible" with our social media behavior for those who are still in uniform.

I have to raise a question that I was having with some fellow veterans: "At what point does an active duty member exercising their 'Freedom of Speech' and being reprimanded by their organization (1st Sgt, Commander, and even UCMJ charges) by posting on Social Media cross paths?"

We had an active discussion over lunch that day. It was great to get the inside from the other veterans. Granted we are not talking about posting security related items other things of that nature. They were just voicing their opinion about any topic of the day/week that was on the news or responding to a post on social media.

We all served to defend our nation against all enemies, foreign and domestic. IMHO, we served to protect the principles of our Constitution. A comment was made during lunch that we serve to protect our Bill of Rights by giving up those same freedoms.

I am curious to know what others here think.

Thanks again for your post. Enjoy your day.

That would get a lot more attention that it deserves if you post that as a separate thread. Its been covered before on RP. I'd suggest you try to find it or create a new thread and use up all five tag slots.

Outstanding article, Sarge. BZ. I swapped sea stories with an Admiral here. Where else does that happen?
