LOS ANGELES - A US Marine sergeant who wrote in a Facebook post that he would not follow orders from President Barack Obama will be discharged from the military on "other than honorable" terms, a Marine spokesman said on Wednesday.

California-based Sergeant Gary Stein was advised of the decision after a commanding general upheld the recommendation by a review board, Major Michael Armistead said.

"He was formally informed of that today, of the separating authority's decision. Now he will go through the transition (process) required to leave the Marines," Armistead said. That transition can take up to 20 days, he said.
