God Bless you and yours Major. Went through the RIF's after the withdrawal from Vietnam - not a fun time to be in the Corp then either, but nothing compared to what this pile of odious warm wet stuff we have using up perfectly good air in Congress is doing. I write my Congresscritters every chance I get, but both Senator's and my Rep are firmly against what is going on and do vote that way (I follow their votes on MegaVote, so I know and don't depend on their newsletters. Had to after K'Bailey who would say one thing and vote the other).


I agreee with Seadog, but in the Majors post, WE ARE STILL AT WAR, and a withdrawl hasnt began as we gut our forces. Does this make sense?


We are in what in the Vietnam era was laughably called a 'Fighting Withdrawal', You're still fighting, but pulling back to center as they pull your forces out. They have been slowly withdrawing forces over the last at least 6 months if not a year, just at the beginning of 'fighting season'. Excuse me, but only an imbecile of a Commander In Chief would ignore his generals that wanted the forces to remain at least through this current fighting season. The 'politic correct' is much more important than the casualty count - as Hillary said "What Does It Matter, Anyhow" - should be a shoo-in for the 2016 nomination.


this breaks my heart. I saw it coming a few years ago...the demoralization and dismantling of our military...we have allowed the enemy access to the highest offices in the land and the writing is on the wall unless folks wake up and understand what is at stake. Major, you, those who have served and (my) men and women serving have my utmost regard and I am doing all that I can to support them. I try to educate my circle of peers, I have taught my daughter and now my grandchildren to be grateful for this country, respect the flag, military and vets, we write our representatives (such that they are), I send care packages when I can, I carry Starbucks give cards to hand out to military thanking them for their service and to buy them a cup of coffee, we pick up the meal at a restaurant, donate to local causes that support our veterans...not because it is my favorite charity or to brag and feel good about myself, but because it is my duty and honor to hold in high regard those who have served and are serving. God bless you major, the men and women who serve(d), and God bless America.


Everyone, our military isnt getting weak, it already is weak and America WILL suffer for it. - elections have consequences..........
