All 33 years I was in the military, we were told to keep our personal beliefs to ourselves. We never spoke of politics and everyone voted the way they wanted. Had someone had bumper stickers demeaning the POTUS, they would have been reprimanded and possibly faced article 15. His contacting a talk show, id'ing himself as a MSG and then the reasoning behind his actions is in violation of the UCMJ. Reprimanding him for reading books though was going over the line. In the military you do not have the same freedoms as a civilian and this guy seemed to be wanting to push the envelope.
