When I first heard it I thought UCMJ! ABC reporter needs to be fired along with their producer for putting this on the air.
People seem to forget when you join the military, you are subject to rules the rest of us are not. Another thing -- when you get deployed, there is no guarantee that you will be back to the States on the date you were told. Military deployments don't work that way. Ask the USS Lincoln crew!

My hubby has NEVER been home when he was first told...and I learned early never to expect it.
I think the only punishment will be that they are not retained...if they wanted a military career, it's now over...they are not career material anyway...they want to be in the Army, but don't want to do what they are trained for....they are not professional soldiers...good riddance.
btw...I had to keep my mouth shut for 8 years of the rapist reign.

One has to wonder about the motivations of the media pool reporters who put these guys up this as well. The responsibility lies with the soldier - but there's no way those guys made it over to Iraq without getting a military affairs briefing - they KNOW soldiers cannot publicly disparage our leaders while in uniform. Something stinks here.
