Veteran Shocked When He Is Kicked Out Of Ceremony For Doing This (VIDEO)

Retired Senior Master Sgt. Oscar Rodriguez attempted to read a statement at a ceremony at a California Air Force base when he was dragged off by three uniformed airmen.

The Air Force Reserve is launching an investigation after a video of the incident at Travis Air Force Base surfaced.

According to FoxNews.com, sources say that Rodriguez was in attendance at the request of the master sergeant who was retiring and who the celebration was being held for. That same source claims that Rodriguez, who was not in uniform at the time of the incident, was banned from the base by a squadron commander.

An Air Force Reserve spokesperson said Rodriguez was removed after an "unplanned participation" after several requests to respect the planned ceremony.

Though Rodriguez and the honoree remain mum, Stephan Sila, who says he is the officiating officer at the ceremony, had a lot to say on Facebook. The 28-year Air Force veteran claims that Rodriguez simply planned to read a statement honoring the flag and that his appearance had been approved.

"Why do you think people are leaving (the Air Force) in droves?" Sila wrote, according to FoxNews.com. "Because the guys in the trenches are subjected to non-stop stupidity from commanders who don’t deserve the rank, respect, or support of the people they’re in charge of."

The Air Force Reserve maintains that it respects and defends freedom of speech.
