From KGTV:

On Monday, Stein was served with a notice that his commanding officer had asked for an administrative discharge over his criticizing of Obama on Facebook.

“He wants it to be with other than honorable conditions, which is I’ll lose my benefits and get busted down to lance corporal,” Stein told 10News in a previous interview. “Of course, I’m concerned about it a little bit and I think anyone would be after nine years, you know, of faithfully serving.”

Stein said Thursday that he feels he can beat the charges against him. He said he will meet with “a strong defense team” on April 3.
