26 Feb 2013 - Article No: 1680. Filed under: Facebook Scams | Facebook Rumour

5 yrs in Prison??? $10,000.00 fine????/ Shame!!!! He needs to be applauded!! Make this go viral!! Share!!!

This is messed up

Valley marine calls himself to duty at an Elementary school. Sgt. Craig Pusley wears his desert camo weapons...just him. Took it upon himself to go to the nearby school and stand watch outside. The school loved it. The principal thanked him. No breaks...just his heart felt need to do this. His reward? Marine Corp Reservists says he violated protocol bt wearing his fatigues and not his dress uniform in public. Facing $10,000 fine and 5 years in prison. Also getting a "dishonorable" stamp on his "honorable" discharge. He served 2 tours in iraq, in Baghdad and Ramadi. One in Helmand province of Afghanistan before leaving active duty.

Now he is writing a letter to the President apoligizing for his actions.

WAKE UP! This man is a wonderful outstanding brave hero in my book and to think for a second that his heart felt need to go stand in front of his little neighborhood school was wrong. Screw you! The President should be sending him a Thank you letter.

So I salute you Sgt. Craig Pusley. Thank you!

This is something I would like to see go viral. Let`s stand up and say Thank you to this man who didn`t think twice...he followed his heart and there is no crime in doing that.

Images are circulating asserting that a marine by the name of Craig Pusley is facing 5 year imprisonment and a $10,000 fine for wearing the incorrect uniform whilst voluntarily standing watch at a school shortly after the Sandy Hook shootings.

It is true that Craig Pusley did stand in front of a school in California wearing his military fatigues and the attached photo does show him doing so. However the message above does omit certain pertinent facts.

For one, despite what he said to the Modesto Bee, a local newspaper, Pusley is not a Sergeant in the Marine Corp. and did not serve any tours in Iraq or Afghanistan. According to Capt. Gregory A. Wolf, a Marines spokesman, who told The Associated Press that Pusley never served overseas and was discharged in 2008 as a private after serving less than a year at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. He also is not a reservist.

Pusley asserted that the inconsistencies into his military history was the fault of the initial reporter who interviewed him.

And despite the claims in the message that Pusley could face 5 years in prison or a $10,000 fine we have not been able to find any sources that assert he will face either.

Despite your personal opinions on the actions of Craig Pusley it is not recommmended to circulate this inaccurate and misleading message.
