To the editor:

I write to comment upon the photo of Navy Captain Copelof at the Democrat Women’s Club. It is appalling to see this blatant disregard of Department of Defense regulations by Captain Copelof. I am certain that these regulations prohibit the wearing of the uniform at political events. Her appearance at this event can be nothing more than political.

Captain Copelof displays a serious lack of good judgment but also an overt disregard for regulations.
