Not enough transgendered here. Transgendered are the victim class of the day.

You are right.

Maybe it is one black transgendered, one female transgendered
and one Asian transgendered.

I’m sure that you realize that the VA has nothing to do with the Department of Defense.

I’m an old soldier, and have the up most respect and confidence in those who serve...however I do not TRUST anybody appointed to any position by obama.

If they are not corrupt when they start with obama, they will be when they are finished; or they shall be fired; if not dead first.

Grrrrrrr!

I hate this slump of pessimism and pit of despair I’ve been in the last almost six years.

I’ve known Joe Votel since he was a pup. I’d go into combat with him any day of the week, a finer man does not trod the planet. You need to direct your venom at the bozos in the White House, not the men who have done far more for this country than you can possibly imagine.

If these men are so exceptional, why would they want to serve under
this law breaking President?

Because they are soldiers and this is our country not Obama’s.
They are better men than you Gunga Din.

If they want to serve under this law breaking President who has cut their
budget, left men to die in Bengazi and hates the military, more power to
them.

Please tell us about your service to this country.

When the Roman empire turned all of their security to the men of the Legions manning the Limes against the hostile barbarians, whilst the Emperor and the Roman Senate wallowed in their debauchery they could not comprehend what was about to happen to them and they cared not about those who protected them against those who would destroy their civilization.

I get it that you don’t like the Emperor, but you are a fool to condemn the Legions.

Oh tut tut. The venom on FR is sprayed in the general direction of Obama not the military. Your boy Joe is going to quickly find out answering to Val Jarrett means always at least feeling like Larry, Curly or Moe.

If that was my job I’d do it to my best ability. I would tell the troops “Run Forest Run”

Because they love the guys with whom they serve, and took an oath to preserve and defend the Constitution along with obeying the President of the United States. Citizens are responsible for who is President. Come to think of it, all citizens should have to take an oath at age 13 on July 4th.

The political side of all this is having an impact on our military and they need to know we support them and would have them all decked out in the latest gear, the best equipment, the most wonderful, healthy MREs, and gel soles in their boots. Send a care package.
