Re: “Vets jumping the Republican ship

Earned the right? We have all earned the right. This is exactly why these gentlemen need to keep their military service out of their opinions. Their opinion is no more important than anyone else. I have an opinion too and I am also a veteran but those are never combined because I know my duties under military law. But I guess this means I will never get an article in the Independent . . . congrats on your celebrity gentlemen, I hope it was worth it.

Re: “Vets jumping the Republican ship

While I support each and every one of us to have an opinion and vote that opinion this election, I am amazed at these gentlemen bad mouthing the current commander-in-chief. It looks like at least two of them are retired officers . . . I query whether he is aware of the UCMJ offense of contempuous words and that it still applies to retirees? While they have the right to support their candidate of choice and also their right to question the policies of the government while an individual, doing so while under the banner of being an officer and a veteran is disappointing. As an active duty member I have all the rights as anyone else but I know how to use my rights so as to comply with military law. I have worked for both parties in my career and I have never engaged in this type of conduct because I respect and follow the oath I took.
