"Amidst the uncertainties of war, every soldier is entitled to one certainty...that he will not be forgotten.
Poor is the nation that has no heroes, shameful is the one that, having them...forgets."

OK, this is a tough one for several reasons.
First of all, I believe the punishment is a bit harsh....BUT, if he did in fact know what he was doing, then I fully support it.
Secondly, I think there is the possibility that he didn't know what the salute represented....I just have a hard time believing that a grown man has NEVER seen it and he lives in Europe and doesn't know the history of Nazis? C'mon!
Lastly, there is also the possibility that he knows exactly what the nazi salute is, but he's not a racist, neo-nazi, a fascist or anything of the sort, and he just got caught up in the moment and did something extremely stupid!
Regardless....this is tough.Science doesn't know everything.....Religion doesn't know anything.
