Marine sergeant being dismissed for criticizing Obama - latimes.com So this honorable USMC SGT said, simply, that he would never follow an unlawful order from the commander in chief. Which, btw, is exactly the same oath he, other military members and all cops took. Scary times ahead folks. Barack Obama, our Commander in Chief, is allowing or ordering a USMC SGT to be dismissed from the military simply because he openly stated he would uphold his oath. It saddens me to think what all the deceased men and women of the WW2 generation would think of our country today if they saw this is the direction it went after their horrible fight.
