Marines Discharge Sergeant For Facebook Posts On Obama

The Marine Corps has decided to discharge a sergeant for criticizing President Barack Obama on Facebook.

The Corps says Wednesday that Sgt. Gary Stein will be given an other-than-honorable discharge for violating Pentagon policy limiting speech of service members.

The San Diego-area Marine has served nearly 10 years in the Marine Corps. He has said he was exercising his free-speech rights.

The discharge will mean he loses all benefits.
