These military people ALLOWING themselves to be prostituted is despicable.
Orders are orders. No branch of the services - not even the Navy taxi drivers - gets to operate without that basic understanding.
You think these warriors have been given the choice of attending or not? You don’t get the choice of attending a speech/photo-op in the field, you are simply told you will show up, and you do.
Unfortunately, meeting with your CinC comes under the heading of legal orders.
They will attend as ordered, be seated well below the salt, and leave quickly without speaking much.
