With the 2012 Presidential election less than 90 days away, there are a number of things Soldiers and government employees need to keep in mind when it comes to being in military or government service and being involved in political activity.
Deandra Covington's insight:

The big take-away from this article is reminding service members and employees the need to be neutrally involved in political debates Due to the way social media is constructed, the ability to become involved in these debates and for one's political perspectives to be heard is easier than ever. It is also easier than ever to be caught doing something like this. Posting one's opinion on American political leaders, or controversial political issues (especially issues on war) is not allowed per DoD guidelines.


To sum it up, if you are a service member, you can post pictures on Instagram of your dog wearing a top hat, but you should not post your opinion of the current POTUS on Facebook. You could get a slap on the wrist or be seriously reprimanded by the DoD.
