Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher is a highly decorated combat veteran who made the mistake of posing for a photograph with a dead ISIS combatant.

It was a breach of etiquette, to be sure. And it was not good optics for a Navy SEAL to have done such a thing.

But it is a minor charge, the only thing a military tribunal was able to convict him of amid a complicated trial that was marred by accusations of prosecutorial misconduct and a witness who changed his story on the stand. Despite the relatively minor charge, some in the Navy wanted to remove Gallagher from the SEALs, stripping him of his Trident pin, a serious consequence.
