Marine Board Urges That Sergeant Be Booted Over Obama Comments

Friday, April 6, 2012


A Marine Corps board Thursday night recommended that a sergeant who made “contemptuous” comments about President Barack Obama be booted from the service and be given an other than honorable discharge.

Sgt. Gary Stein, who left a variety of anti-Obama comments on a Facebook page, was stoic when the three-member board announced its decision at about 11 p.m. after an all-day hearing.

The final decision on Stein’s status will be made by the commanding general of the Marine Corp Recruit Depot San Diego.

Stein, 26, a nine-year veteran of the Corps, had no comment after the board announced its decision following 40 minutes of deliberation.

But Mark Brewer, one of Stein’s civilian lawyers, said, “We’re disappointed but we’re going to keep fighting for this Marine.”
