Free Speech for Adam Kokesh!
Slightly OT, but Operation Yellow Elephant supports freedom of expression for recent veterans, including Iraq veteran former Sgt. Adam Kokesh, who faces a downgrading of his honorable discharge for wearing surplus fatigues [with military insignia removed] at a protest. Almost all are members of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR), though Kokesh's IRR contract runs out June 18, 2007; in the IRR, Kokesh is not part of a unit, does not train and receives no pay.
Even the conservative Veterans of Foreign Wars has urged the Marine Corps to leave this patriotic American alone. Hel-lo! Frankly, what's left after that is chickens - - -, and one can reasonably ask whether the Marine Corps has better things to do at this time.
We hope that the College and Young Republicans, who at least claim to include recent veterans, will join us in ensuring that the American people may hear from those who know the best about this subject.
