I used to be a soldier’s spouse.  I have experience in the military as an associate, but enough to have a feel for the character they present.  I also have enough experience to realize why this administration loathes the military.  They are an institution representing the best America has to offer in the federal level.  They are the presentation of force to the world and expression of our society.  While I was associated with them, there was grace said before meals.  There were toasts to the country, service, and women.  (Remember that women fighting is a recent change, and really placed there as a detriment to the ranks)  The presentation was always with precision, planning, and training.  These were the ones providing their best to the country and asking little in return.  We saw “When the Game Stands Tall” a few weeks back, and I so appreciated the scene with the veterans.  That described the feeling of the troops.  They were there for each other.  That is the reason adding homosexuals and females in the ranks was desired by the present regime.  Placing those elements adds elements to the interactions causing the unit to be less effective.  If there was not a problem adding those elements, why was training provided on how to interact?  I have long argued that men will not behave towards women as they do to each other.  Period.  Full stop.  That is why women have no business being in fighting forces.  The same applied to homosexuals.  Their presence adds elements of distraction to the unit reducing their effectiveness.  How could I say that from outside a unit?  I have been in a nursing unit with a proud open homosexual.  He was fine as a nurse, but definitely added distraction to the unit.  Remember, that in a nursing crew, we get to leave after 8-12 hours and don’t see our fellows until the next day.  The military unit doesn’t have that space.  Personally, I think that is exactly the reason they were placed there by our present regime.  There are other reasons, but I won’t elaborate further.  I just was reminded of our great forces with a video link from an acquaintance at church:

This is what the left despises.  This is the depiction of our pride and why we stand tall and salute.  These are the ones providing the payment for freedom.  It isn’t free.
