Leonard Clark Punished by AZ Guard

Leonard Clark if you recall, was the Arizona National Guard soldier on active duty in Iraq who had the nerve -- the unmitigated gall -- to post on his blog his opinion about the war.

For his trouble, he was forced to take down his blog and submit to an Article 15 UCMJ, charged with "violating operational security" and 11 counts of disobeying orders.

Clark was busted down one rank to PFC, fined $820 per month for two months, and sentenced to 45 days restriction and 45 days of extra duty -- suspended for five months.

Kos has the whole story.

Remember the old saying, no good deed goes unpunished.
