MARINE FACING COURTS MARTIAL FOR DISPLAY OF CROSS IN AFGHANISTAN


Lance Cpl. Blas Trevino of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, clinches his Rosary beads as he is treated by U.S. Army flight medic Sgt. Joe Campbell after being rescued onto a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army’s Task Force Lift “Dust Off”, Charlie Company 1-214 Aviation Regiment in Afghanistan Saturday, June 11, 2011. Trevino was shot in the stomach outside Sangin, in the Helmand Province of southern Afghanistan, Saturday. The Army’s ‘Dust Off’ crew needed two attempts to get him out, as they were fired upon and took five rounds of bullets into the tail of their aircraft. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)

Said President Obama today in a press conference, "Naturally we salute the heroism of this young Marine wounded in action in Afghanistan, however, the wanton display of the Christian Cross in a Muslim country is totally unacceptable and is a courts martial offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice."

I am 100% positive that quote is made up. I can't think of a single UCMJ Article that action violates. You have a link, video, or source of ths press conference where he said this?

Do you have a link, a video, or another news source to verify this quote? The reason I ask is I am pretty sure it's made up. I don't recall a POTUS presser to day and what that soldier is doing doesn't violate the UCMJ under any Articles that I can think of. Thanks!
