Marine Corps drops PR rep for referring to RIMPAC as SNOOZEPAC on blog

Military Times

Military blogger Gina DiNicolo (left) -- in Hawaii for RIMPAC, and working for the Marine Corps -- called it SNOOZEPAC and said it's "38 days of too many visitors gorging themselves on foreign and U.S. naval delicacies." She lost her job.
