    I think it was a jerk thing to do. I do not care if she was just trying to create a gag photo. I'd exercise my first amendment right to quote Donald Trump from the Apprentice to her and let her sue me if she wanted to. As long as I did not object to her unemployment, she'd have little chance of winning IMO.

    She should absolutely not lose her job. Americans do not have a better or more shared past-time than righteous indignation.

    Iwas going to initially say she shouldn't be fired but there is a case for it based on two things. 1) The incident happened on the organizations dime 2) She is a representative of the organization and they deal with veterans. Had this been a personal trip she paid for I would say no she shouldn't be fired, I still say it's up to the organizaion though.

    No matter what, she did something glaringly disrespectful and in horrible taste.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The public shouldn't have a say in this, BUT it would be grounds for termination here because of the nature of the organization and the offense. She pretty much desecrated a tribute to many of the people they serve, not a good tide to swim against for her.

    Holy cow people need to get a life. Should every person that burns the US flag be fired? That seems more disrespectful to me, though I don't care if people do it. What about people that call soldiers murderers? Where does it stop. I hope that if for some crazy reason she IS fired that the company gets taken to court and found guilty of violating her rights and forced to pay billions of dollars to her.

    For those that are offended by what she did you eriously need to get a ****ing life.

    It's stupid but if she were my employee she wouldn't lose her job. No doubt we'd have a bit of discussion but if I fired people for being jerks it would be awfully quiet around here.

    She was on company time on a company trip when this photo was taken.So the company has every right to fire her over this. This would be no different if a McDonald's employee was fired for taking a picture of themselves pretending to give head to a plastic Ronald McDonald statue while wearing a McDonald's uniform and posted on facebook or a Walmart employee getting fired because he or she took a picture of themselves saying walmart sucks ass while pushing carts and posted it on twitter.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    She was on a company trip, and she was with co-workers, but it's not clear she was on company time at that moment. She may have been on an off-time side trip. The story isn't clear on that point. People usually do have off-time on company trips.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yet another example of why ignorance is not bliss.
