A man walks the world to face our enemies, and then is punished for making a mistake. I forgive him and so should the men who order him into war. If he is guilty then so are the (mind my french) Cunts that run our country for making mistakes on their wrong decisions.

He was in possession of a firearm given to him by foreign leaders. More to the story.

Another classic example of' Military Justice'(?) exceeding the requirement for a just outcome to a trivial and inconsequential error. (Regardless of the manner of ownership of the weapon!)
Loss of 40 years Pension Rights - @600k, Loss of Lump Sum @ 3 times Annual Pension 45k.
Immediate loss of home.
Loss of a highly trained and valuable Soldier Asset - beyond valuation.
Social effect(Stigma et al) on one Wife loyal for years to an organisation that demands more of them as individuals...

Devastating to his two Children and extended Family overseas and at Home.

I completely agree. SHAME on the Army and a bigger SHAME on his Commanding Officer.

This is a judgement of a Martial Court against one of their own, not the judgement of a Cvil Court. So why the harshness? Is there more to it than meets the eye? The enqiry must go on.

I think that this is sad and tragic that this man has fought for his country and has a brain injury and thw gun was a gift and in his locker for over two years. Free this man and get him home with his family!!!!

I hate injustice the law is the law and no one should be allowed to deviate from that! But come on the man had a brain injury - he served his country - surely a suspended sentence would of been more appropriate! Sometimes the law is such an ass - the guilt go free and the innocent get locked up - stick the man on a tag if you have too but let him out to be with his family.

Having read the newspaper report it is hard to see why the case came to court let alone ended up with a prison sentence. Needs to be freed and the judge locked up!
