Below is an extraordinary, heart-stopping and historic letter. It is a letter SSG Matthew Sitton sent to U.S. Rep. C.W. "Bill" Young after his commanders in Afghanistan told him to "quit whining" about orders to lead patrols without objective "through, for lack of a better term, basically a mine field on a daily basis," as Sitton wrote. Twice daily basis, in fact. On August 2, 2012, Sitton and another US soldier were killed in one the IED-riddled field he spoke of. Eighty-one-year-old Rep. Young, who attends the same church in Florida as the Sitton family, this week announced he no longer supports the presence of US troops in Afghanistan and called for their withdrawal in advance of 2014.

You knew of the policy? Please explain.
I just wrote James’ cousin to find out if he knew the person who sent the message to him and if the person actually knows it to be true.
I could understand active military personnel not taking speaking engagements but retired??? They are retired from the military and I would think are free to do as they wish.
Sorry, I got mixed up. The one who wrote the message is retured, the soldier who was to speak is stationed at Ft. Brag. Waiting to hear back on this. We must make sure it is actually true.
Just got this reply from my James’ cousin’s wife, Betty. My message to Marcus & Betty is first:
Do you know the person who sent this to you? Reason I ask is many are wanting to know who Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington, VA is and if this is really true. If it is true there are folks who will get this story the attention it deserves if it is true! Please let me know if you know Obama actually made such a dictate on Military speaking at a faith based event. Love, Jeannie
Jeannie, I think it came from my cousin in Nebraska. Am checking with her and hopefully we will know by morning. After sharing I deleted it. She is very well informed and sends me great material. You will hear either from her or me. Betty
It wouldn't surprise me if you are correct!
Here is another article to read:
In daily prayer for our troops.
May the Lord comfort their loved ones.
Rest in peace brave Marines.
Vice Admiral Robert Henry Scarborough
U.S. Coast Guard
Hopefully, some FReeper with military connections can provide further info about confirmation, but here’s another:
OBAMA STOPS SOLDIER FROM SPEAKING (idiot)

OBAMA STOPS SOLDIER FROM SPEAKING
Something you’ll want to be aware of:
Sent by Retired Vice Admiral Bob Scarborough, of Arlington , VA.
“I wanted to give you all some disturbing information on our wonderful president.
I work with the Catch-A-Dream Foundation,
which provides hunting and fishing trips to children with life-threatening illnesses.
This past weekend we had our annual banquet/fundraiser event in Starkville.
As a part of our program, we had scheduled Sgt. 1st Class Greg Stube to come; he’s a highly decorated U.S. Army Green Beret and inspirational speaker who was severely injured while deployed overseas and didn’t have much of a
chance for survival. Greg is stationed at Ft. Bragg , NC and received permission from his commanding officer to come speak at our function.
Everything was on go until Obama made a policy that NO U.S. SERVICEMAN CAN SPEAK AT ANY FAITH-BASED PUBLIC EVENTS ANYMORE.
Needless to say, Greg had to cancel his speaking event with us. Didn’t know if anyone else was aware of this new policy. You’re just starting to see the Obamanation. This is just how the Nazis did it in the 1930’s - slowly, one step at a time.
This should be forwarded to everyone regardless of party affiliation!
We have lost 50% of our freedom of speech in the last 2 years. The news media is not allowed to print anything negative about this evil regime.
ARE YOU STILL GOING TO REELECT HIM???????????

If true, someone would have to be blind, dumb, or intentionally ignorant to not see that worst horrors and infamy are coming if he wins. Lord, have mercy ..
Starwise, many thanks for finding this!
From the article, he is now 89 years old.
Those in highest command and with the maximum brass **KNOW** that the occupant in the White House:
** posted FORGED birth documents
** FAILS e-verify
** uses ANOTHER MAN'S social security number
So?...If these perfumed princesses don't give a twit about their oath before God to defend the Constitution and its Article 2, Section 1, why would anyone believe that they care a twit about the brave and honorable military men and women serving under them? By supporting and upholding a likely pretender in the White House, is this how they watch the backs of our brave and honorable troops? Huh?
Personally, I have made a decision. If in the very unlikely possibility that I should be in the presence of these despicable men, I will turn my back. I will shun them.
That is sick!!
Had a conversation recently with a young active duty Major (from my perspective as a Vietnam era Marine) who has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He told me in no uncertain terms that we needed to get out of Afghanistan now ... it was a total shit hole with absolutely no redeeming virtues. I’ve been in this forum (FR) for a long time and I’m not making this up ... I’m not being any more specific because I want this officers opinion to remain anonymous.
Prayers for these Marines fighting it out in Afghanistan and for the families of those who have fought their last.
You’re welcome ..
This guy is a real piece of work turncoat, villain, Obie brownnose and rotten appeaser, IMO
Damn him ..
Obama wouldn't provide our warriors with what they needed to get the job done and win, has made it obvious he sides with the enemy, tells the enemy when we will leave, and continues to release the Islamic terrorists from GITMO!
Our troops are sitting ducks with “green on blue” attacks happening more and more since Obama told the enemy when our troops will withdraw from Afghanistan!
Please go here and read more. And realize Bob McCarty has been spending his life bring out the truth!! Be watching for his upcoming book, “The Clapper Memo”!
Saddly more then have of the military will vote for Obama because well....
Anyway. It is sad.
Documents: Obama, Holder have approved one of bin Ladens bodyguards for release or transfer from Gitmo.
Yes, but they can kiss another serviceman while in uniform, even marry him! May God have mercy on America!
