As he expected. But I get the felling that his doing the equivalent of jumping on the grenade will be recognized. He ran a training unit so my guess is that after all that has happened this year he could not longer look the new recruits in the eye and honestly tell them that they were anything but disposable battle fodder for the current administration. This is a really big deal with the Marines.
Biden could not give a fuck about them. Although Biden keeps going on about his dead son who served in the military the son was a fucking JAG. In the National Guard. The only people more hated in the military than MP’s are JAGs. The military lawyers. JAGs are the classic REMF’s. Only ever found in HQ. On the rare occasions a JAG actually got shot at the front line guys were usually hoping the hajis would get a lucky shot.
The Lt Colonel sounds like a really good guy. I’ve worked with several people like him in the past. Whatever happens he will be looked after and he will do well. He obviously cares far more about his men and his country that his career.
So another huge PR fiasco for Biden. Wont be reported in the MSM. But it is everywhere else.
