I can but ditto this Marine’s sentiments…
EDITED 8/28/2014: Thanks to Greg Sanders for the correction. The Secretary of Defense did attend the funeral. I suppose that’s something.
Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan on August 8, 2014 while serving his country in pride for 34 years. As of 1972, he was the highest ranking officer in the military killed in action since the Vietnam war. President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier yet he spoke highly of Robin Williams who committed suicide. He was buried August 14 in the Arlington National Cemetary. Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral. President Obama was on vacation, playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard. No flags were ordered to half mask yet they were for Whitney Houston who also committed suicide. I find this very offensive and disrespectful to the veterans who have served our great country. But then again, why does this not surprise me.Do what you want with this email but I am sending it on.David EadsUSMC 1971-1973
Our country is in dire need of leadership and we are not going to get it from whatever it is we have now.
PLEASE…Revolt with your vote.
