    This makes me sick

    I guess this pic has gone viral. It makes me want to vomit and this so called lady needs to be dishonorably discharged IMO.

    What's the big deal??
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    There is a certain amount of decorum that is expected of members of the US Military. The activity shown in the photograph goes well outside the boundaries of that decorum.

    More information --

    Now that is a picture of disrespect.

    A photo showing an airman tongue-kissing a Prisoner of War-Missing in Action symbol has gone viral, angering veterans.

    The picture — of Staff Sgt. Cherish Byers, of the 92nd Security Forces Squadron at Fairchild Air Force Base, Spokane, Washington — has been posted on several Facebook pages, prompting an angry online response.

    Marine Corps veteran Michael Kelley wrote of his "blind fury and disgust", while another, Tara Marie Murray, said: "Let me put this out there seeing as I'm Air Force veteran…no matter what uniform she was wearing this is disrespectful anyway."

    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.

    The Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force, James Cody told the Air Force Times, “it's a concern any time someone shows disrespect for prisoners of war and those missing in action. "They deserve our utmost respect and we must always remember their sacrifice and the legacy they've left for us as men and women serving our nation." The statement added, "I want to make to clear that this is not a reflection of airmen who wear this uniform; it is a case of port judgment of one airman…to say we are disappointed would be an understatement."

    An investigation has been launched into the incident, reported the Air Force Times.

    For those that want to know what the big deal is, here you go:

    I don't think she should be kicked out, but I do think repremanded her with an article 15 is in order.

    Correct, however, in this case I could see non-judicial punishment being handed out.

    Sawyer, some people didn't recognize that from your pic. That is why I went to get the article and so did Maggie.

    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.

    dude I had no idea what the picture was or what the heck she was doing. Atleast others had the decency to put some background up and you were the op.
