Gary Stein, the U.S. Marine sergeant who criticized President Barack Obama on Facebook, will likely be dismissed with an other-than-honorable discharge.
Last month, Stein and his Facebook group, Armed Forces Tea Party, were in the news because of his remarks which were found to be “contemptuous.”
Among other things, Stein called the President “the ‘Domestic Enemy’ our oath speaks about.”
A three-member panel met on Thursday and reached a unanimous recommendation that Stein be administratively discharged. However, it is just a recommendation. The decision must go through General Daniel D. Yoo in order for Stein to be officially discharged.
Depending on which discharge is handed down, Stein, a Marine of nine years, might lose all his benefits.
