A military board says a Marine who criticized President Barack Obama on his Facebook page has committed misconduct and should be dismissed.

The Marine Corps administrative board made the decision Thursday after a daylong hearing at Camp Pendleton for Sgt. Gary Stein.

The board's recommendations go to a general who will either accept or deny them.

The board also recommended that Stein be given an other-then-honorable discharge. That would mean Stein would lose his benefits and would not be allowed on any military base.

Stein's lawyers argued he was expressing his personal views and exercising his First Amendment rights.

Stein is a 9-year veteran whose service was to end in four months.
