A military-civilian distinction
To the editor:In response to Donn Miller's letter, "Marine Corps brass' double standard":
I am a retired Navy veteran (captain with 31 years of service). It was clear from the start of my career that as a member of the armed forces I was forbidden from appearing in political activities in uniform.
The distinction between civilian leaders of our country and uniformed personnel is clear to all members of the service. Any member who chooses to violate this policy will be subjected to disciplinary action, especially officers.
