    This from your link says it all.

    "There's absolutely no reason to have done anything like that," Kelley said. "It goes completely against everything that we're taught in the military from Day 1. She failed herself; she's failed the Air Force and the military community as a whole by doing something that disrespectful and then having it get out to the world like that."

    He said the picture reflects a wider "cultural problem" in the Air Force that is also evidenced by the cheating scandal involving Air Force missile officers at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont.

    "It seems like one thing after another with this complete lack of respect for the basic principles of being in a military service," said Kelley, who left the Marine Corps in 2003 as a lance corporal.?

    I too think she should get NJP, lose a stripe, which would be a career killer. But if this happened would we have a bunch of threads about Obama running good NCO's out of the service?

    Theres LOTS of things that happen in the military that goes against what the military is. In my time in, we had people with DUIs, drinking under age, physical assaults, etc. NONE of those things exemplify the military.

    Again, I think she should be punished and a field grade article 15 could do the trick IMO. No, I don't think she should be kicked out.

    Edit: If you could, there should be another option listed though if you're serious about the poll. An option for non-judicial punishment (aka Article 15). I think she should be punished, but not kicked out.
    I'm sorry but I just don't see how anybody does not immediately recognize that symbol. Maybe it's an age thing. Maybe my poll could have had more options but I was so mad when I saw this on our local news that it was all I could do not to put the option of hang this b*** up.

    Losing a stripe being a career killer? No, I knew a sargeant that got busted down to E-2. Before I left, he was back up to E-5. He just had to work hard and earn trust back. It added about 4 more years of progression for him, but it isn't a career killer.

    I recognized it, but from the pic quite a bit was cut off AND the focus was on the woman in the picture. If it was the full symbol I think people would have recognized it better. I understand your anger and feel it as well. I just think the person made a mistake and it can be corrected.
