What ever else, I would add a good long dose of community service. Give them some time to really think about what a foolish thing they were doing.
The National Institutes of Health has just released the results of a $200 million research study completed under a grant to Johns Hopkins.
The new study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than the men who mention it.

Maybe appearing before local Veteran org's like the American Legion and VFW &Amvets & offering them an apology would be a good start.

These are all great ideas !!! A huge dose of humility along with lessons in civic responsibility and pride.

Pass whatever judgement you want. If charges are pressed then a real judge, qualified in these matters, will make a ruling. Community service might be the ticket. However the real judgement/healing will take place between Dean and his son when Dean comes home.

Pac-man, consider yourself the winner of the "Mr. Obvious Award".
