If you have any doubts as to what can be said politically while in uniform and what should be left to civilians, I present you with Petty Officer Millen:
The military community will likely play a huge role in the upcoming presidential election, and the internet knows which way at least one sailor will swing.
A man who identifies himself as a sailor wrote a letter to Mitt Romney that popped up on the Tumblr page of a girl who says she will be joining the Marines in her profile.
Petty Officer Millen writes that he is “part of the 47% that will never vote for you.”
Hmm, I imagine something should come of this. What about that Marine, Sergeant Gary Stein, who sounded off against President Obama on his Facebook page? Did he not get discharged? This appears to be roughly equal, no? Is not the Third Class Petty Officer in uniform sharing his partisan beliefs? Soon, I imagine Petty Officer Millen will get all the chances in the world to open his piehole. Once he gets kicked out. Big mistake, Shipmate.
