Further, a video at KNUS, a good talk station, has avideo of what seems to be the same PFC being very dangerous with a rifle in her room.

One of Obama’s own. But that is what we have degenerated into as a Nation. Not surprising at all.

When I was in the Navy lots of people would run into a building when taps was played so they wouldn’t have to stand at attention and salute.

Another obama success of wanting like minded yes men/women serving under him.

Let her try. I suspect those 400+ million firearms and hundreds of billions, if not trillions of rounds will have something to say about that. Knowing what I do about how they've watered down basic and AIT, I'd be more fearful of any of the pre-teens on Duck Dynasty than a platoon of these bozos.

This is why I didn’t have a knee-jerk reaction to reducing the size of the military. We have too many people in the service who have no business being there. They’re there for all the wrong reasons and don’t contribute a whit to national defense.

Sadly, I’m not so sure... With the radical, Marxist, anti-American, anti-military regime we have in power right now, this chick is just as likely to receive a medal for her disdainful lack of patriotism.

When I was in the Army, it was roughly the same way. They wouldn't run away, but guys would time their exits and entrances past the flag to avoid Retreat( which is what this girl is talking about - every day at 1700 hours). It wasn't out of disrespect, it was just that, once the music starts, you have to stand there at attention for a few minutes until the flag is fully folded, and this is right at the time you're off duty, possibly headign to chow. Guys just didn't want to be stuck that extra few minutes. You still salute the flag though, when you walk by, regardless.

You wouldn't believe the scurrying around to get indoors I used to see on both Army and Air Force installations when I was in 20+ years ago. Nothing is new in this, except the selfie/posting on-line part.

Hopefully not, but with todays push for everyones rights it’s not assured.

She doesn’t belong in with that attitude but short of booting her she should be a Pvt. on permanent KP.

Send her to the front.

When she sees who’s coming at her she suddenly will find she wants that flag behind her.

Then saluting it will suddenly make sense.

As an Army spouse, sometimes I’m in the parking lot loading my car after a late afternoon trip to the commissary just as taps is being played. I stop and stand at (civilian) attention. It’s no great inconvenience.

Just to nit-pick, I think you mean Retreat (daily 1700 at the lowering of the flag). Taps is a whole different ball game.
