As an American and proud Veteran

 I cannot in good conscience accept Trumps validation of prohibiting the military from following their Uniform Code of Military justice, as he just did with the Eddie Gallagher case. Trump has the authority to pardon and forgive after the verdict – not before.  Surely, as smart as he is, he should realize he is not Judge or King.

I can and will thank Eddie Gallagher for his years of service, but when he posed as he did for the world to see, I lost any respect for him     

An excerpt from ex-Navy Secretary Spencer that cuts right to the core of the matter –

…The rule of law is what sets us apart from our adversaries. Good order and discipline is what has enabled our victory against foreign tyranny time and again, from Captain Lawrence’s famous order “Don’t Give up the Ship,” to the discipline and determination that propelled our flag to the highest point of Iwo Jima. The Constitution, and the Uniform Code of Military Justice, are the shields that set us apart, and the beacons that protect us all. Through my Title Ten Authority, I have strived to ensure our proceedings are fair, transparent and consistent, from the newest recruit to the Flag and General Officer level….

Respectfully yours, Richard V. Spencer

    1. Four. And I can’t feel much respect for them either, but I thank them for their service to our country!

      And I don’t like sour grapes and I don’t whine – simply voice my opinions and promote the facts!

      Ok, the blurb about Trumps ‘bone spurs’ was just heresay not fact.

  1. What was the rank of the Senior SEAL in the photo?

    Why wasn’t he charged? Why weren’t the other SEALS charged for the same thing Gallagher was charged for – they were in the same picture. Selective justice is injustice.

    Trump fixed that.

    1. The others were officers and only Gallagher was charged with the death of the isis fighter and the minor charge came out of the trial for the death charge.

      You can spin on this for days if you want, but you can’t change the facts. And the other three were recently forgiven by the brass for the picture, thanks to Trump.

      Have nice day!

          1. I don’t watch TV news. It’s not news. It’s agenda.

            Again, if you don’t charge all of them it’s not justice to charge one of them for the same offense. Especially, if he was charged with it because he was declared innocent of the other charges.
