    This photo is a lie. *Fact* Not every member did. Many were forced to testify against their will. *Fact* The Secretary of the Navy’s actions were illegal, as it violated double jeopardy, because Chief Petty Officer Gallagher had received a trial. *Fact* Most enlisted members of the military, including myself feel was nothing more then a witch hunt by arm chair officers who have never actually seen combat. *Opinion, but that is our feeling* Chief Petty Officer Gallagher was pardoned. *Fact* Chief Petty Officer Gallagher was convicted of and pardoned for the crime of re-enlisting at a politically inconvenient location,… Read more »

    LOL, me thinks he doth protest too much.
