    Nah, never heard of him. I'm not a big fan of Leatherneck mag. It seeks to dumb down info to the enlisted man because its assumed that we are, in fact, dumb. Not to discount the Colonel. I'm sure he was a good man. Not a fan of Chesty either. I think he was a glory hound who sent his men to the slaughter for his own accolades. The only legit Navy Cross he has is his first one from the Banana Wars. Not to divert the thread title though. Just my two cents.

    You mean "reading his Bible aloud".
    Your expert legal opinion?

    Even if I were a lawyer I wouldn't render an expert opinion on a public forum. But you can look up the laws for yourself, they're everywhere. The signs that say "employees only" and "keep out" still mean the same thing inside City Hall and the County Courthouse. Not everyone can just barge into a judges chambers or the mayors office or certain areas of the Hall of Records for that matter. Just because it's public property, as in owned by the government in some manner or other, doesn't mean everybody has free and unlimited access to the property.



    Ed:
    If nothing else the 8' fence and warning signs around most military bases should be enough proof of that.

    He won 3 Navy Crosses, was a Japanese prisoner of war for 44 months and fought in the Banana Wars. Grand old gentleman, I had the opportunity to speak with him before he passed on. Has a shooting range named after him at Quantico. But probably wouldn't have been reading his Bible, in a parking lot, to stay on topic.
