TN National Guard disapproves of taking oath of office with a dinosaur puppet

Excerpt from a Washington Post article:

It’s unclear why Master Sgt. Robin Brown, a public affairs officer with the Tennessee Air National Guard, recited her oath of re-enlistment last week using a dinosaur puppet. Or why the colonel conducting the ceremony allowed her to do so, stifling his laughter as the puppet mouthed the oath.

But the two have been let go from the Guard after a video of the incident went viral, garnering about 2.4 million views on Facebook by Wednesday (Facebook Post HERE) and upsetting many in the military community who felt Brown and the colonel’s actions were disrespectful. Brown has been removed from her full-time job with the Tennessee Joint Public Affairs Office and the yet-to-be-identified colonel has been demoted and immediately retired, according to Army Maj. Gen. Terry Haston, the adjutant general for the Tennessee National Guard.

    Another embarrassment to TN! Neither one of these people were fit for the military. I hope any benefits they are to receive are removed as well.

    Can’t help but notice that the male’s identity isn’t known and he is forced to retire, probably with benefits, while a picture and the identity of the woman is provided, plus she is flat-out fired, probably without benefits. A picture is not always worth a thousand words, and I would really like to know the full story behind this reprehensible – according to the higher ups – act.
