I second the motion to make a separate thread. I knew of the policy; here’s the outcome that more need to see.
Beyond that, and to all who posted above, words fail beyond saying “God help us.”
My thoughts and prayers are with all who serve and with their loved ones.
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.
