    Mass. woman loses job after posting photo on Facebook

    The FB page, as promised by it's sponser, has been removed after her firing. The article above does say she resigned and was not fired/terminated. In this economy losing your job is not good and in that regard I feel a little sorry for her. Nobody is going to want to associate with her or have her on their payroll me thinks. I also feel kinda bad for her family having to endure her stupid mistake.

    Her stupidity should be a lesson for everyone..........

    I have mixed feelings. I served to protect her right to free speech but I find her actions despicable.

    Arlington cemetery and the Tomb of the Unknown soldier is sacred and hollow ground. It should ALWAYS be treated as such.

    She's 30 years old and describes herself as a douchbag... her parents must be proud, talk about reaching for the stars!

    I don't blame her employer for their actions, I wouldn't want someone that immature with so little common sense and poor judgement representing my company.

    I read the posts saying the Facebook page has been removed, but does that really remove the image from the Internet? I think not, it seems that anything posted on the Internet, especially if it is controversial, seems to live forever. When will people learn that their actions posted on a public forum will somehow remain in the public venue forever.

    There's a reason some people become pariahs.

    Funny, how much in this life ends up being self-induced.

    I respect her right to free speech...I also respect the rights of her employer to fire her. I hope she learns a lesson from this.

    Sorry to say it but you hit it 100%. Within DAYS she will be on Bill Mahr, Letterman, and the View being hailed as a 'hero.'

    Completely agree. The difference maker here is social media. If she had done this 10 years ago, before the existence of Facebook, no one else outside her circle of friends may have even know about the photograph. And, if her employer did learn about it she probably would have received a reprimand but not fired. Social media has the ability to damage an individual's or company's reputation in the blink of an eye. LIFE's reputation has been negatively impacted by this incident, deserved or not, figuring into the decision to fire her.

    This blog post, while dated because it refers to her being placed on unpaid leave not fired, actually deals with all sides of the issue well.

    Whether or not she "meant" it, she DID disrespect the people who served our country. Describing herself as a douchebag is spot on though.

    I also found it disgraceful and distasteful. I don't accept her apology, either. She was on a business trip on company time and pay, so she was representing the company. I'm glad she lost her job.

    Not if she is fired for cause, which this would be.

    I read an NBC article that said she was allowed to resign. At least she will be ineligible for unemployment compensation.

    I doubt it. But I know that, if you turn out to be incorrect about this, you'll own up here. Right?
