Strike a Pose. Nice picture. I am thinking the one with you and your (General Patten [Victory Cigar]) is a great picture to place in a book of rememberance.

You are one of those people who can have pictures taken and you look good even on bad hair or good hair days. lol I envy you. :-(

So Short-Timer, Just making sure you are keeping the dead rats, crawling scorpions and any other kind of pest (including insurgents) away from you and your fellow commrades.

Be good and stay safe.

Word to the Wise. Don't Re-Up!!! Get out be the writer I can tell people I use to write to her when she was serving in the "Sand Box" :-D

P.S. Can you get a rich local there to fly to Cuba and bring back some Havanna Cigar's??? We could make a bundle and this will give you the $$$ to begin writting the books you need to have publish. lol

Have a Great Day and Weekend if I don't see ya,

Lieutenant, ambotchka@yahoo.com
It is necessary to direct your attention to consider what constitutes "unofficer-like" postings.
Time to "check fire" on your travel log assertions, future blogs and your behavior, and should take this
counsel into account.

If you do not understand my meaning, speak to your JAG directly to underline
the entries in your blog that reflect language and attitudes "unbecoming an officer."
Please reference UCMJ Article 133.

Article 133-Conduct unbecoming an officer
http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/mcm/bl133.htm
“Any commissioned officer who is convicted of conduct unbecoming an officer
shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
Elements.
(1) That the accused did or omitted to do certain acts; and
(2) That, under the circumstances, these acts or omissions constituted conduct unbecoming
an officer and gentleman.
Explanation.
(1) Gentleman. As used in this article, “gentleman” includes both male and female commissioned officers.
(2) Nature of offense. Conduct violative of this article is action or behavior in an official capacity which,
in dishonoring or disgracing the person as an officer, seriously compromises the officer’s character as a
gentleman, or action or behavior in an unofficial or private capacity which, in dishonoring or disgracing
the officer personally, seriously compromises the person’s standing as an officer. There are certain moral
attributes common to the ideal officer and the perfect gentleman, a lack of which is indicated by acts of
dishonesty, unfair dealing, indecency, indecorum, lawlessness, injustice, or cruelty. Not everyone is or
can be expected to meet unrealistically high moral standards, but there is a limit of tolerance based on
customs of the service and military necessity below which the personal standards of an officer cannot
fall without seriously compromising the person’s standing as an officer or the person’s character as a
gentleman. This article prohibits conduct by a commissioned officer taking all the circumstances into
consideration, is thus compromising. This article includes acts made punishable by any other article,
provided these acts amount to conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman. Whenever the offense
charged is the same as a specific offense set forth in this Manual, the elements of proof are the same
as those set forth in the paragraph which treats that specific offense, with the additional requirement
that the act or omission constitutes conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman.
(3) Examples of offenses. Instances of violation of this article include knowingly making a false official statement;
dishonorable failure to pay a debt; cheating on an exam; opening and reading a letter of another without authority;
using insulting or defamatory language to another officer in that officer’s presence or about that officer to
other military persons; being drunk and disorderly in a public place; public association with known prostitutes;
committing or attempting to commit a crime involving moral turpitude; and failing without good cause to support
the officer’s family.
Maximum punishment. Dismissal, forfeiture of all pay and allowances, and confinement for a period not
in excess of that authorized for the most analogous (similar) offense for which a punishment is prescribed
in this Manual, or, if none is prescribed, for 1 year.
Other related offenses.
Article 89-Disrespect toward a superior commissioned officer
http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/mcm/bl89.htm
Article 90-Assaulting or willfully disobeying superior commissioned officer
http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/mcm/bl90.htm
Article 91-Insubordinate conduct toward warrant officer, noncommissioned officer, or petty officer
http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/mcm/bl91.htm

Hi Amber,

Don't let "As Fache" intimidate you. I can't find anything in your blog "unbecoming" of an officer.

Hi Amber,

I sent you an e-mail on this and also called a good friend who talked with a good friend of the family that is a LT Col+ (ask not give rank or name) in the Army and he said he looked at your Blog and found nothing wrong with it.

He said not to send any communications out that would lists security details (As to what changes have been made or will, or etc, other then that, this blog is a private form that allows you to express yourself in a proper manner otherwise.

The other thing is if we as the civilians want to talk garbage about the military we can and that as an officer you are not allowed to speak ill of the military in this forum.

But, no worries you got civilians who like and love ya that can talk all the s*@# we want.

As a veteran I can say I find nothing degrading or security risks on your blog, so I would say who ever sent you the comment, is chicken s*@# and has no beach (BALLS) to show him or herself.

Have a fabulous weekend. Remember stay safe and alert.

Obviously if Lt. Mathews' behavior on this blog was unbecoming an officer a notification of warning would not entail a posting as the one seen above by any individual authorized to give and enforce said warning.

Well, peronally I would tell Anny Nanomus to Bite Me. Hmmm...but I'm a Gram and that probably wouldn't be too lady like.

You're doing great girl. Keep it up and thank you for what you do for us all each and every day.

Hugs,
