According to Fox News, Lance Corporal Monifa Sterling was stationed at Camp Jejeune in North Carolina in May of 2013 when she taped the Bible verse ‘no weapons formed against me shall prosper’.
As a result she was convicted February 2014 at a court martial for not following orders to take down the verse. Monifa was then dishonorably discharged and given a reduction in rank. The Liberty Institute has taken a stand with her.
