    See how that works when you make blanket statements.
    Besides, statements of complete disrespect to any dead enemy soldier you say deserves to be pissed on, says all we need to know about you .

    Highly inappropriate but not something that cannot be corrected and ultimately forgiven.

    I've never liked the mindset that says if someone does something inappropriate, the response should always be they lose their job. I support corrective and restorative discipline when necessary.

    I don't see the picture as mocking. It could be interpreted exactly the opposite.

    Never, once, when a woman put her tongue in my mouth did I interpret that as her "mocking" me.

    Symbols are symbols, not the actual thing or idea represented. Arguably, she was showing attraction to the man in the POW logo. It was probably just a silly joke and no actual POW/MIAs were harmed, only people looking for a reason to be outraged.

    A dishonorable discharge strips a person permanently of many citizen rights, including gun ownership.

    Many members of this forum are wannabe insecure little Nazis who want maximum penalties against anyone who doesn't act the way they like - the verdict of couch potatoes and isolated internet addicts in my opinion. I do not see mocking, I do not see any violation of any military rules I can think of, and if anyone doesn't like it tough ****, don't look.

    I'm not sure why, but I think that is funny as hell.

    And don't ask me why I think it is so funny because I don't want to or need to know.

    Sometimes a good laugh should be just left at that.

    I agree with you.

    The whole POW/MIA "issue" and religion-like cult of advocates left over from the Viet Nam war was based on silly Rambo-style wishful thinking and myths.

    The picture shows Byers wearing her senior airman's rank insignia. Although it was taken almost three years ago, it has only now gone viral.
    I wonder what the statute of limitations is on something like this. Seems it well past or should be. If it were so outrageous and hatefilled, why did it take three years for anyone to notice. Seems like punishing her now is just reactive stupidity.
