Give Her Dishonorable Discharge: Navy launches investigation into female Black sailor Janaye Ervin who didn't stand for National Anthem



It’s a privilege to serve in the military and if she doesn’t want to stand for the national anthem, then the Navy doesn’t need this woman-period! 
Get rid of her fast!   

Fox News reports the U.S. Navy has launched an investigation into the case of a sailor who didn’t salute as the National Anthem played during a recent morning flag-raising at Pearl Harbor, an official said Tuesday.

U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesman Senior Chief Petty Officer Joel Cesar said it’s up to the sailor’s commander whether she faces any punishment for failing to salute the flag on Sept. 19.

The sailor under investigation is Petty Officer 2nd Class Janaye Ervin, an intelligence specialist in the Navy Reserve. She was recently in Hawaii for about two weeks for an exercise. She’s assigned to the Navy Operational Support Center at North Island, Calif.

Ervin had explained her actions in a since-deleted Facebook book.

"I feel like a hypocrite singing about the 'land of the free' when I know that only applies to some Americans," she wrote. "I will gladly stand again, when ALL AMERICANS are afforded the same freedom."

Ervin said she was threatened with jail time for her actions.
