Meanwhile, back in the USA, problems with a Navy doctor who was allowed to stay in the Navy after paying a $2,500 fine after taking a Marine’s brain home, and letting his children hold it while being photographed by his wife. Does the doctor have combat deployments? Is he suffering from PTSD? I don’t understand how a Navy doctor could take a Marine’s brain home and have his children handle it. Imagine how the children must feel, it just does not seem right. And it does not seem right that he is allowed to stay in the Navy. Links from around the GWOT:

1.)  Navy doctor takes Marine’s brain home, lets his children hold it while his wife takes photos. Makes no sense to me. Isn’t this child abuse? I don’t know, just asking. He was allowed to stay in the Navy: what’s going on here? Link:
