Marine Corps Sergeant Facing Disciplinary Action for His Facebook Comments Criticizing Obama

Sergeant Gary Stein, 26, is now facing disciplinary action from the Marine Corps for his Facebook comments that he posted on his "Armed Forces Tea Party" page criticizing President Obama.

Sergeant Stein says that the Marine Corps is infringing on his right of free speech when he is off-duty and out of uniform.

Defense Department rules allow military personnel to express political opinions provided that they are not doing so as a representative of the armed services.
