The Commandant of the Marine Corps has decreed that all symbols of the Confederacy be removed from Marine Corps bases. Even, at least, the General class of officers in the Marine Corps has caved to political correctness.
Every time there is a soldier with an eyepatch or missing limb put before the cameras, one’s heart and respect go out to that purple heart recipient. Some people from the past also wonder what kind of leadership is leading. Once there was little doubt in men like Chesty Puller, or Smedly Butler. But any given day now, when some moronic order is issued, well, God help the troops.
Not surprising. Most officers beyond field grade have become no more than political hacks, including, apparently the Commandant.
