Ron:Liam, What exactly is the military trying to do to you?
Liam:The Marine Corps notified me that I was being recommended for "Other then Honorable Discharge" from the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) for two alleged violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice
1. Wearing a partial USMC camouflage uniform at a political protest
2. Making Disloyal Statements at a speech in New York City. I said that "The War in Iraq is, by Nuremberg standards, a war crime and a war of aggression" and "the president has betrayed U.S. service members by committing them to a war crime
In essence, they are trying to apply the UCMJ to members of the Individual Ready Reserves (IRR) who aren't supposed to be subject to it. Further, they are attempting to silence political opposition to the war by intimidating vets and GIs.
Ron:Just to clarify, are you still in the reserves?
Liam:I'm still a member of the IRR
Ron:Why do you think they chose you? Is this also happening to other service people or vets?
