I previously posted about this but here is a more detailed Navy Times report about CSM Crump, formerly of WRAMC.

A former command sergeant major at Walter Reed Army Medical Center fired for allegedly faking his record and wearing unauthorized awards and decorations faces military discipline for a series of bold deceptions that span several years and multiple commands, according to the charges against him.

World News Daily has a piece on LTC Lakin’s OER issue.  The piece seems to accept without question or fact-check the allegation that the, “Army convicted me without trial.”  It would seem a proper journalistic analysis would review the actual report (still publically unavailable) and review in comparison to AR 623-3 .

An Army officer who has chosen to stake his career on a demand that Barack Obama document his eligibility to be president is charging that the Army has convicted him without a trial.

The National Law Journal has a short piece  on the litigation in California by the Log Cabin Republicans challenging the DADT.  Maybe the case will be resolved on a standing issue vice the merits.

Finally, Freeborne continued to assert that the Log Cabin Republicans lacked standing to pursue the claim.
"Mr. Woods gave short shrift to the subject for obvious reasons: Log Cabin cannot identify a single member who has the right to challenge the policy in his or her own right," Freeborne said.
Neither of the individuals claiming to be Log Cabin Republican members has identified himself as a Republican, he said, and both failed to pay dues.
During trial, Woods introduced several officers of Log Cabin Republican who vouched for their membership.
