    To carry on a Chanel Handbagsin hand would be undoable to assure that high status that you appear, it is the excellent design in styles and materials that applied which make the bags excellent. Go right down to own yourself one Chanel bags, and you would can used for quite many years without out of fashion. Chanel Outlet series would be a great choice.

    According to the Military Code of Justice you could be shot for falling asleep on sentry duty during combat duty.

    As far as I can see they only went too far by pouring sand on the Marine's face. Sleeping on duty in a combat zone? Advocates for UCMJ or administrative punishment are wrong. Administrative punishment takes him out of the combat zone and then somebody else has to pick up his slack. At the same time you can't tolerate sleeping on duty--that gets people killed.

    You can sleep on duty....once.

    One blanket party is enough, then it goes to the platoon CO to deal with. Still, the dude may have earned the title of Marine, but he gave it up the second he put his squadmates ind danger. No sympathy here.

    The 3 Marines had a duty to report the victim for sleeping on duty, especially if this was a repeat offense; it wasn't their place to administer punishment on their own. That's why there is a chain of command !!! If the Marine had already been caught in the past, and nothing had been done about it, the responsibility/blame lays with the superiors for not having taken action already, especially in a war zone.

    This is a prime example of someone who was not Marine material. ANY troop that falls asleep on watch is a danger to the whole unit. Sorry, no sympathy here!

    The Marine in question was derelict in his duties. Perhaps UCMJ was the proper route, though. The man should never have earned the title of Marine if he was willing to risk their lives for some shut eye. I've got no problem giving a blanket party to a dud in a combat zone.

    These Marines where trying to instill in that Marine a sinse of his obligations as a man and a Marine. By sleeping on watch in a combat zone, he placed many others lives at risk.
