#1 I'd like to see a good number of JAG advisors who wrote up RoE that were in direct contravention of Art 99 of the UCMJ be put before a board -

10 U.S. Code § 899. Art. 99. Misbehavior before the enemy

Any member of the armed forces who before or in the presence of the enemy—
(1) runs away;
(2) shamefully abandons, surrenders, or delivers up any command, unit, place, or military property which it is his duty to defend;
(3) through disobedience, neglect, or intentional misconduct endangers the safety of any such command, unit, place, or military property;
(4) casts away his arms or ammunition;
(5) is guilty of cowardly conduct;
(6) quits his place of duty to plunder or pillage;
(7) causes false alarms in any command, unit, or place under control of the armed forces;
(8) willfully fails to do his utmost to encounter, engage, capture, or destroy any enemy troops, combatants, vessels, aircraft, or any other thing, which it is his duty so to encounter, engage, capture, or destroy; or
(9) does not afford all practicable relief and assistance to any troops, combatants, vessels, or aircraft of the armed forces belonging to the United States or their allies when engaged in battle;

shall be punished by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct.


Throw in the additional charge of conspiracy to obstruct this article of the UCMJ.

#2 Trump just tweeted out that the Navy will NOT be allowed to remove Gallagher's Trident. "Get back to business"

pretty clear message to Obama's Brass

#3 Prediction:. He'll likely leave on his own.

#6 Frank, I don't think they can take his Trident away. But they can certainly not let him back into the Seal detachments as they are a selection type unit. Then it would be the Navy's problem to find him a home or retire him.

#7 seems like it would be difficult for Gallagher too be on classified missions now with the media tailing him.

#8 Just don't make him a ship's cook.

#10 The military babus never forgive. They go after minuscule infractions like flies on shit. While traitors like Vindman enjoy protection by the ⭔.

I remember we caught such hell for some boys writing "Allah Allah !" in Paki blood next to a charcoal drawing of a skull in the POK once.

It's just a lark, an little stunt after the heat and noise. If anything the pansy purveyors of postulations like PTSD should wave it off as a 'temporary loss of propriety' there.

"Good to go ! Won't happen again. A-Ok..."
