He got a combat diver badge then split.
Some of the folks in my class (6-82) say he was in our class. I don't remember him, thank God. IIRC he did go to 5th then split when the 18 series came out. So I guess he has TM ldr time, not sure how long though.

But anyway...good RIDDANCE
Out of all the places I've been, this is one of'em....

1st term is the answer, Trump was intending to wipe the floor with the swamp critters in his 2nd term once his S/A was solid....I think we forget the sheer amount of swamp pressure he was under with insiders, outsiders in the media, Hollywood celebrities, impeachments, Hillary/Comey and smirk man, Congressional D andI Rinos....Milley laid just low enough to not get fired.,.he was just slippery enough to avoid getting flushed. The military and DOJ were up coming IMO
