Is there any laws covering in the state of Ia keeping a state nation guard recruiter from going on facebook and making statements against the military, C in C, personnel serving in the state NG, national policy, etc?
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.

Let me pull the statue for IA...just a moment please....
Under IA code, Ch 29B (military justice) this would be a crime.

The law provides

29B.116 GENERAL ARTICLE.
Though not specifically mentioned in this code, all disorders and
neglects to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the state
military forces, of which persons subject to this code may be guilty,
shall be taken cognizance of by a general, special, or summary
court-martial, according to the nature and degree of the offense, and
shall be punished at the discretion of that court. However,
cognizance shall not be taken of, and jurisdiction shall not be
extended to, the crimes of murder, manslaughter, sexual abuse,
robbery, maiming, arson, extortion, assault, burglary, or
housebreaking, jurisdiction of which is reserved to civil courts.


So what you describe? If the recruiter is

"going on facebook and making statements against the military, C in C, personnel serving in the state NG, national policy"

That could be prosecuted under this provision
