Military Yanks PSA About Camp Pendleton Marine
A public service announcement featuring former Marine Sgt. Gary Stein was intended to keep Marines out of trouble during election season.
A military public affairs team pulled a public service announcement that featured former Camp Pendleton Marine Gary Stein.
The Temecula-Valley resident was given an other-than-honorable discharge in April after he had written comments critical of the president on the Facebook page Armed Forces Tea Party.
The public service announcement—called “Staying social media savvy during election season"—was published Tuesday and upset Stein, according to the Marine Corps Times.
A search on the military’s primary news wire showed the video’s link existed, but an error message appeared in its place.

The video—which was published by Marines of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point—was pulled Tuesday, said Amanda Pacheco, of the Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System. She could not comment on the reason and would not be able to provide the video, she added.
