An Open Letter to General Mattis

An Open Letter to General Mattis


Americans who have never served have no conception of what the social experiment has done and is doing to our military. Sadly, the young people in the military right now; mainly believe everything is A-Okay, because like children in a dysfunctional family they don’t know any difference.

But, vets who served before the cultural Marxists and the militant feminists took control understand. We know perfectly well that diversity and gender neutrality are not combat multipliers. We understand what the military is capable of doing when it focuses on its mission; to defend the country if called upon and to destroy our enemies on sea, land and in the air as violently and as swiftly as possible.
The two most powerful warriors are patience and time - Leo Tolstoy

It's Never Crowded Along the Extra Mile - Wayne Dyer

I've always thought America was Great. Wouldn't it just be Great if we made it America Again?

That was a good letter. I suspect it will fall on deaf ears.

It's well past time for some generals to draw their swords . . . to wield them or to fall on them.

Great letter, I thought it should have included a "sign here" for veterans who agree with the letter.

Unfortunately, those who are in charge will not hear nor heed what is being said. At least not until there's a WW3 style war where the incompetent politically correct social flag officers and their minions are replaced by warriors after millions of unprepared service men and women die because of political correctness.

Great letter!

When I went to Jump School then didn't allow females.

Guess that tell my age.

On the other hand anyone can jump out of a plane it only matters what you can do when you hit the ground.

more than likely

"ROTC male cadets were ordered to parade around our nation’s campuses in red high heels to show empathy for rape victims; male soldiers were instructed to conduct PT in pregnancy simulators; the Marines were forced to endure some kind of Soviet style gender unconscious bias training, to brainwash young men into believing women were as strong as they were; there was a new lexicon of gender neutral military terms, soldiers took online classes that informed them the Bible and the Constitution were now sexist documents; there was the repeal of don’t ask, don’t tell and the celebration of open homosexuality in the ranks, the embracing of the transgender mentally ill and gender reassignment surgery paid for by the tax payers; lactation memos and instructions for the proper storage of breast milk in the field; sensitivity training in combat zones, babies born on US ships of war.."

Had I not seen it first hand, I could have (as some might) read this as exaggeration/fake news.

But there I was. The company was doing solid commo training with a very enthusiastic instructor and solid equipment support when suddenly it was cut an hour shorter for.......LGBT mandatory training

If that's not enough, during planning range time was to be shortened to half a day to make for "jeans walkaround" or denim day sexual assault solidarity. I almost blew my lid and suggested sure, no problem, no need to cut range day in half. Joes who are not on the firing line can do the walkaround at the chow area at the range. No one was amused by the idea. Good thing common sense prevailed and we were able to have full range day. Phew....for now

The "jeans walkaround" is a new one... never heard of that before.

Its a good thing leaders are focused on the things that count.
