We are using transactional replication to replicate 3 tables from a sql 2008 database to a sql2012 database. Replication is is removing permissions from the sql2012 database.

I thought it was the snap shot at initiation that was causing it but the log shows the snapshot was delivered at 6:00 PM and the permissions were altered some time after 10:00 PM.

Any ideas on what is happening and how to stop it?

By default, objects at the Subscriber are dropped and recreated when a subscription is reinitialized, which causes all granted permissions for those objects to be dropped. There are two ways to handle this:
