I think if some of the folks here knew what a dishonorable discharge entails, and what additional punishments and losses of freedoms that go with it, they would be a bit more careful in calling for one.
a Dishonorable is much much more than than simply being booted out of the service.... in most ways, it's the same, or worse, than being a convicted violent felon.
you lose your right to vote, your right to keep and bear arms, your ability to hold office, your ability to work for the government, the right to unemployment benefits upon separation, your veteran status ( and all veteran benefits, including medical benefits).
that's a mighty steep price to pay for clicking some pictures that every photojournalist does legally and properly.
so yeah, in your zeal to show just how anti-war or anti-military you are... just keep the facts in mind.... you'll be seriosuly ****ing someone over for life for doing something that it otherwise legal and proper ( for journalists)

Its only the liberal idiots calling for a Dishonorable. The same jackasses who do not serve. Who the rest of us hope will just GTFO of the way when the crap hits the fan. REMF's on their best days.
