I don't think their intent is to stop soldiers from telling their side of the story, their concern is for someone to say something like this “Yeah, when I was in Iraq me and my team routinely crossed into the Iranian side of the border to patrol the passes frequently used by the foreign terrorists”, you can see how that could cause problems.
In my opinion they have nothing to worry about, as I don think our men and women in uniform would discuss classified or sensitive material online, but then again, it never hurts to be safe..

you can fight and die for your country, but you'll go to prison if you talk about it online. i understand the security concerns, but i think they are going way overboard here. the government complains about the news media's liberal slant on the war, but then doesnt let the warriors tell their side (and the majority have very pro-american things to say).
we trust them with our lives, i think we can afford to trust their discretion on the net.
