I wonder what the active duty military folks are being told. It is not uncommon for combat arms Soldiers to keep all of their field gear in their private quarters, on and off post. That includes enough M4 magazines to make a combat load.
Being that they are federal government employees, kinda like FBI, ICE, DHS...why wouldn't they get a pass?
Although the article in for a decorated veteran, I am simpathetic to his situation. Sounds so dumb that the officer would not look at the whole story, instead of carting him off to jail.
What we do depends on how we feel about what we know.
Knowledge is power only if it is acted upon.
Wisdom is knowledge with understanding.
