    Some people are so anxious to portray themselves as interesting or provocative on social media, they do and/or post almost anything to get attention to receive more comments or "likes" from their friends. Pretty sad really.

    She's just disgusting. Thrity years old and she thought that would be "funny"? I have no words for her because she's beyond help...useless and devoid of decency. What's worse is that there are so many like her nowdays.

    Yeah it was a stupid act that she didnt think about.

    I dont like that it happened, but I choose not to be offended by the actions of stupid people.



    I do not think that she should be fired for something that she did on her own time in her own way. What she did was not illegal, life threatening or any thing like that and I dont agree with it. If her employer had an issue with it,then he could do something other than fire her, because contrary to popular belief, it was her right to be stupid and to act stupid.

    I can see her winning this one in a law suit.

    Actually, according to the following article she was on a work-paid trip, therefore, not on her own time and a representative of her employer at the time.

    Her first response was along the lines of "Chill out it's no big deal" Until she realized it is a bid deal,there were many posts from family members eulogizing their Warriors that were KIA in Iraq and Afghanistan.We have thousands of Foreign Tourists that visit the Tomb every year and they realize how important and solemn the whole area is.

    It dosent work that way.

    If she wasnt "on the clock", she was on her own time.
    I'd bet that since she was there at the Tomb, she wasnt on the clock.

    This woman, and the friend taking the picture, were supposed to be guides/examples for those they served. Unfortunately they chose to be disrespectful guides/examples. I'm glad their employer has some integrity and has terminated their employment. Actions should have consequences. Think before you act. I hope the two females (I will not call them ladies) are truly sorry for their actions, and not just sorry they got caught. I hope this is a lesson well learned and that they do not decide to see themselves as a "victims" which they most certainly are not.
    I know Whose I am. I know where I'm going. I know the job I'm to do while I'm here. I am an ambassador. This is not my home.

    What she did was classless.

    Firing her seems like an over reaction on the part of the employer, but because of social media their hands were tied. The problem with social media, is that it makes it easier for the pickfork and torch bearing mobs to identify people who do stupid things that are offensive to whom ever. 15 years ago that picture would not have gotten her fired simply because millions of people wouldn't have been able to see it and cause it to go viral. People are idiots when it comes to social media because they will include all sorts of personal information, which in this case I am willing to bet she posted who she worked for and probably linked to their Facebook page. This implies that things she posts on her facebook page are a representation of what that company stands for. Mixing your business with personal things (like facebook pages) is never a good idea.

    I have seen people do dumber things while traveling for work (ie get drunk in a foreign country and assault a local LEO) and not get fired. Maybe she will learn a lesson from all of this and stop posting images of her doing stupid things on facebook. However, I doubt it as she did not figure it out for the first 30 years of her life.

    I am sadden by the actions of Ms Stone and what she did reminds me of what happened in the 60s when I left the Navy and I have to say at this point I have no wish to defend her or her freedom of speech. My Grandfather, Father, myself and my son have all served in the military and all of our vets have paid a hell of price and some still do not know what may lurk in the shadows. I am not sure what type of sleep I may have but I am thankful for my son being home after serving in the Balkins and the middle east and he carries a disability as many do so in closing I wonder what Ms Stone will see in the mirror and maybe it would not be so funny if she had seen some of the things we have. Thanks, allowing me to have a small soapbox helps when ulgy jumps up

    Act disrespectful, and you'll likely be disrespected for it. Life's pretty simple, in that regard.

    I'm pleased that this person's selfish, unthinking actions have brought attention to the sacrifice and service of our veterans this Thanksgiving. America can never thank you as often as you deserve.
