The Military can be a bit strange with stuff like that (althought using the helicopter was pretty stupid of him). I knew an ARMY officer (captain) who belonged to a swingers club. He and his wife were at a big hotel that were a swingers party was happening and a fellow officer saw him and his wife going to the event and reported him. The Army tried to kick him out of the service and he went through a lot of grief and expense to fight it. He "won" in that he didn't get kicked out but his carreer was over at that point and he only remained long enough to be eligable for his pension.
