It seems the U.S. Army Punished a Soldier for not honoring the Chick-fil-A Boycott

The Army won't say this publicly....WHAT ELSE could this be?

Remember when the President of Chick-fil-A's came out in support of traditional marriage and there was a big push to boycott his restaurants?
An Army master sergeant was punished after he hosted a promotion party and served Chick-fil-A sandwiches in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act. 
The unidentified soldier was investigated, reprimanded, threatened with judicial action and given a bad efficiency report, according to the Chaplain Alliance for Religious Liberty.
“They say he is no longer a team player and was not performing up to standards,” Chaplain Alliance Executive Director Ron Crews told Fox News. “This is just one little example of a case of a soldier just wanting to express his views and now he’s been jumped on by the military.” 
Crews said the soldier decided to hold a party to celebrate his new position. The invitations read, “In honor of my promotion and in honor of the Defense of Marriage Act, I’m serving Chick-fil-A sandwiches at my promotion party.”
After the party, the solider received a letter of reprimand. Crews said at issue was the combination of the sandwiches and the soldier’s support of DOMA (which happens to be the law of the land). 
“There was initially some talk of bringing judicial punishment against him,” Crews said. “He had a letter put in his file and an investigation was initiated to see if he had violated any policy.” 
The solider reached out to the Chaplain Alliance for help and they put him in touch with an attorney. Crews said nearly one year later – the soldier is still embroiled in a legal battle.

This Army Master Sgt. did NOTHING WRONG except make positive reference to DOMA which is the law of the land. I'd like the ARMY to tell us, HOW is that breaking any rule? OR maybe the ARMY was upset he served CHICK-FIL-A's during the libturd boycott of that business? This soldier IS STILL being harassed by his superiors.
