any soldier,sailor,coastie or marine, that has a BRAIN, KNOWS that loyalty to ones God,family & state are AT LEAST equally important to some amorphous "America first" NATIVIST nonsense.
I have not known anybody in the military who is more loyal to, say, Idaho than the USA. Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't members of the military take an oath to this country and its Constitution, rather than their state?

during WW2, FDR (upon being told that MANY southern boys had answered the question, "Have you or any of the members of your family ever fought against the United States?", YES,)said that: "HONORABLE service to the CSA was AMERICAN SERVICE & NOT disqualifying." (emphasis, mine.)
