"higher ranking office" - all the more reason to be VERY careful.
(BTW, I'm a retired AF O-6, and getting such pictures that might be career ending is a risk I wouldn't wanted to have taken.)
If you think that you can get away with something that you KNOW is wrong...then...well, you draw your own conclusion.
Legal or not, it seems a very dishonorable thing to do. Doesn't make me proud.
Why not just send the pictures to his smartphone, or better yet, create a private picture hosting account?
What you decide to do really is your business and that of your "customers". But keep this in mind as you go ahead with your plan. These days, nothing rarely stay private. There are so many times those private photos leaked out and caused all kinds of embarrassment and havoc, sometimes results in death of innocent people. Also, what people people do in private is whole a lot different than what they would do when others are watching. This is especially true in oppressed countries where one is not free to express themselves. I will stop here as it is just my opinion. Good luck with your plan. I sincerely hope it won't back fire on you, your friends, or others who might get wound up on wrong side of the situations.
They are very definitely banned.Quote:
Why not ban girlie magazines and all booze in general -- they can be smuggled as contraband too.
Afghanistan is NOT Iraq. They could do and have things in Iraq that are not remotely allowed in Afghanistan. There is also a high amount of professionalism expected of the officers and this does not fit that standard.
If you do the photos, wait until he's home to give them to him. When he's caught with them (and there's no way my husband could have kept something like this secret, even at his rank), the incident will make it onto his next OER. When he's putting in for the next bump in rank, all of his OERs will get reviewed. He will not be high on the list. If I were you, I'd be honest with the wife about this and remind her that she can have a lot of responsibility for how his career goes, too.
The uniform is not the problem at all - just his location and the rules they have for troops over there.
I suppose asking the husband for his input is beyond consideration.
If it was something that could get me in that much trouble, I think I'd like to know beforehand.
