    I thank the Col. for testifying; a true soldier that placed his country and the truth above the president, and his monumental lies.

    He displayed the honesty and integrity our military is known for. He earned the right to wear that uniform, and screw any snot nosed punk that doesn't recognize that.

    The man did nothing wrong except he upheld the Constitution which he swore to uphold and protect. He answered questions given to him by Congress under their constitutionally mandated oversight powers. Apparently you want to turn the military into a political organization. He set the perfect example by answering the questions put to him by Congress. Why should he not wear a uniform. Col North did the same thing when he testified to Congress. These fellow soldiers are the ones who are disobeying the oath they took. They are showing they are dishonorable.

    By disclosing classified information he committed treason.. He should be arrested, adjudicated under UCMJ, stripped of his rank, and discharged as a traitor.

    DOD regulations prohibit military personnel from wearing a uniform in a political proceeding. In reading the transcript, Rep. Ratcliffe questioned the Col. and all he could say was, "I assumed...I guessed.... I thought...I believed." A piss poor performance.

    Pretty sure military officers are required to wear the uniform in a lot of different situations. Testifying before congress probably applies. I am also reminded of Oliver North testifying in uniform and getting adulation for selling weapons to Iran.

    It was not a political proceeding. It was official testimony relating to his military position

    He honored his uniform that day
