Yeah, I guess I am guilty of skimming.

In that case, he is a cowardly soul who needs to wake up.

I remember during the Gulf War in 90/91 I heard many stories of people enlisting int he service to "get money for college", they didn't expect to have to go to war.

It really makes me sick. When I enlisted I didn't think of "going to war" but I certainly wasn't going to not do what was asked of me. You make a choice and go with it.

What rank is the LT Colonel in the Army? In the Marines it's o5 I think. How long has this fellow been in the Army?

Looks like he is using Obama not being born in US as an excuse.

The officer rank structure is the same in the Army, Marines and Air Force.

LTC Lakin's numerous awards and decorations include the Army Flight Surgeon Badge, Combat Medical Badge, the Bronze Star Medal, the Meritorious Service Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, the Army Achievement Medal with two Oak Leaf Clusters, the National Defense Service Medal with Bronze Service Star, the Armed ForcesExpedition Medal, the Army Reserve Component Achievement Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Overseas Service Ribbon sixth award and the NATO service medal.

He has served previously in Honduras, Bosnia, Korea, and Afghanistan.

Can't understand why someone with that much service invested would throw it all away like that, especially over something this stupid.
I have to agree. He just threw away a well-decorated career. If he wanted to protest based on a question of birth certificate, why not BEGIN protesting the day Obama was sworn-in? Instead he waits until his current orders change to deployment orders and THEN he protests? As somebody said, it looks like he's looking for an excuse to avoid having to go back to the Beach.

He'll never be a full-bird Colonel

He should just retire or get discharged instead of spouting off... No real proof either way of his citizenship (questions do remain in my mind) but he got elected by the majority and, unless a real proof comes to light saying he is not a Constitutional President, then he is the main guy.
(And I hope not, I don't want Biden to be President.)

although i disagree with this officer exponentially, and think he is NOW a douchebag....to get the CBM (combat medical badge) and especially the bronze star means at one time he served with honor, courage, and distinction. they don't just hand out the bronze star, even to officers, methinks that he is now not so honorable.
