As a military member...the Master Sgt should know better. You give up the right to engage in political activity while in uniform and you have know right to link your military position to political views. I've seen the policy enforced against liberal/conservative/Republican/Democrat views. If he doesn't feel he can remain apolitical while on duty, he should retire. (Btw, I likely agree with most of his views on a personal level, but know they can't be linked to my military position). An apolitical, professional military is essential to our democracy.
