Short Take: Navy sailor discharged for AOL profile promoted

Timothy McVeigh, the U.S. Navy sailor who was temporarily ordered discharged after Navy officials used evidence from America Online, has been promoted to the highest enlisted rank, according to the Associated Press. McVeigh had gotten the discharge order after the Navy linked him to an AOL account and claimed it proved McVeigh was gay. A federal judge barred the Navy from discharging McVeigh. The Navy is appealing.
