    I seem to recall Gobbels had that said attitude about "Free Speech"...

    "The "Chains of Security" on Free Speech for our Armed Forces doesn't quite cut it Sarge.

    I don't know if they can get on Facebook/Twitter. It's a blog so probably not. And if so, they won't be for long. You should know this. In the heat of the moment (or just after a moment), an individual will state and write all kinds of things before he has had a chance to calm down and process. This is why we preach to our Marines to constantly talk to each other. The last thing the Marine Corps (or any other branch) needs is to have a blog pop up that states that Marines were slaughtering dozens of civilians when the facts were that a couple were accidentally killed or that he was a part of some mission into Syria just to impress a girl he met on the Internet. What would the media do with a story that comes from a Marine written on the Internet about a unit entering Syria on a top secret mission? You see it here. When a Marine is involved, people look into it with greater interest.

    There is a lot to consider here.

    Cut it for who? You? Free speech is a civilian's luxury. Not a military's. And when it comes to the military and the Internet, information kills. They can write letters, talk on the phone, read and receive e-mails, watch the news, and read newspapers. They cannot eat up bandwidth on blog sites, talk about mission sensitive information, or connect to sites known for intriducing viruses into networks.

    What is it exactly that you are bitching about in regards to "free speech" or censorship?

    Did you know that certain clothing is also not authorized in the military? There are many things that are and are not authorized in the military. for example, I can't wear a shirt with a Swastika on it nor can I wear by Cammie blouse while wearing Dress Blue Trousers. Nor can I wear Nikes in uniform. That's why they call it a military. We exist so that the civilian can do whatever he/she pleases. For someone that served before, you sure have a bitter outlook as to what the military is supposed to be.
    Bitter Attitude...? Watching the samething happen to our Military, that happened during Nam don't come close to what I feel. Remember to read anyone that's tries to kill you, or your Men,,,their Miranda Rights.

    Ain't B.O. Great?

    And since this "censorship" has been going on since 2004, what exactly does President Obama have to do with it? I guess it was about our troops safety and INFOSEC when it came to President Bush, huh? Now I see the partisan.

    And watching you "Censor" what I say tells me a lot about you Sarge.

    Do you even know what censorship is? What you wrote is clearly written in your post (#24 in fact), which means that you weren't censored. What I responded to was what I wanted to respond to. I have no want to pat you on the back for your feelings in regards to the rest.

    Maybe your idea of what censorship means is the whole problem here.

    Tacky Sarge. And the response I'd expect from you. You'll notice I've NEVER omitted a single line, or word from YOU.

    Yet,,, you 'feel" justified" in deleting my responses. Clearly, you're a Sarge who stays hidden in the Rear, with the Gear".

    Maybe you should so that I know exactly to what you are replying to. This is how it works.

    And now you are just being adolescent. I don't see where I have written anything that would "clearly" tell you anything of my combat experiences from Somalia to Haiti to Iraq.

    Notice I also cut out your use of smilies? I find them childish and unecessary as well.

    Yeah,,,I was a kid during Nam. True...We ran across NonComs like you, and we let them "Lead". They came from a Supply Depot, or Typing Pool. We'd let them tell us where the Latrine was, or Chow Hall. That was about it.
