“More Outrageous treatment of our Military – This is utter BS”

Via LH


ore outrageous treatment of our military. Army 1LT Clint Lorance from Celeste Texas, a 28 year old ground combat platoon leader in the 82d Airborne Division was just sentenced to 20 years in Ft. Leavenworth on two counts of murder. In July 2012, 1LT Lorance ordered the engagement of two Taliban scouts who were tracking his platoon’s movements while on a patrol in Kandahar province, a platoon that had recently experienced losses, including the previous Platoon Leader. According to our ridiculous Rules of Engagement, soldiers in a combat zone are told to hold their fire unless there is evidence of hostile action or direct hostile intent.

  1. What I'm about to tell you pales in comparison to the story posted above
    but it points out the utter disregard POTUS and his people have for our troops.
    I have a young friend who is stationed in S. Korea in the USAF. His tour there is
    over and he was due to come home over a week ago but the civilian employees
    that would process his travel orders are on furlough so he sits in Korea, with nothing to do and waits. Meanwhile his mom, who has counted the days for his return, is wringing her hands.

    I wonder how many others, who have risked all to protect us, are in the same situation this morning?
