The Marine Corps decided Wednesday to discharge a sergeant who made comments critical of President Obama on Facebook.

Sgt. Gary Stein will be given an other-than-honorable discharge for violating the Pentagon’s rules limiting the speech of members of the armed forces.

Stein, who argued unsuccessfully that he was just exercising his right to free speech, served in the Marine Corps for close to a decade but won’t get benefits after his discharge.
