Probably got wind of the story and spent even more taxpayer money to make morons jump for joy about a story that exposed him for the fraud he is, yet again, while in government shutdown. 


That comment took no thought.
It takes weeks, if not months to prep a Presidential visit to an unsafe country.

Drew deserves far more respect for what he did in the service than you’d ever deserve as a “I was in the Navy and that’s all you’ll ever need to know.” You probably weren’t shit related to ground combat bitch.

give the man the respect, Sir, if you don't mind- the military has a vast array of jobs that all support one another and all in effort to accomplish the mission.

I agree and appreciate his service but I’m sure his time pales in comparison to yours and to only say he was in the Navy and that’s all we need to know is BS. Maybe leading folks into thinking he was a Seal. I’m Air Force but I wouldn’t dare lead anyone into thinking I might have been a PJ or CCT by saying something like “I was in the Air Force and that’s all you need to know”. Stolen Valor or planting the seed of Stolen Valor pisses me off.

All you need to know.

You were a squid, so was John Kerry.

I bet when you got out you were singing that old navy song "I Hate to Leave My Buddy's Behind".


Several of us are ex military.
All you need to know.

Indeed.  I've heard it a time or three.  I'm still in touch with some FMF Corpsmen who have my respect obviously, and they get "into it" in a friendly way on FB with the Jarheads in the group.

One of my good friends still in Ohio was in the Navy, not surprisingly.  He was on the Bainbridge.

i get a kick out of the ribbing between services... truly.  it's not as malicious as it seems to others. 

i worked with SEALS- they are impressive in the water.  they also have toys- i mean a LOT of them.  DevGru, as a for instance, ALONE has a budget larger than the entire USMC.  Folks don't realize there are more SEALS than Army Rangers (75th regiment, that is).  They also fail to realize only DevGru has the DA mission and are the only Counter Terrorist unit in the nations inventory (well, green side... there are plenty of black side Counter groups)... The remainder of the team's are Anti-Terrorist.  there are also plenty of other 'anti-terrorist' groups in the services.  

there was a lot of talk some time back, and possibly still remaining about spinning JSOC groups into their own service altogether.  SOCOM is kinda already doing that but not exactly.  there is a lot of internal strife and rivalry between groups on 'who gets what mission', and the unit's with the larger numbers usually get their pickings, it seems.  RAIDERS, as an example, pulled many of it's (re)Founding members from Force Recon which depleted those ranks- but that may have been a good thing near the end as Force had gotten away from it's true purpose by cross-training with DA units.  They're better served deep behind lines collecting intelligence than jumping around like ninja's on an objective- and the fit between CCT of AF fame fits nicely with this function- ANGLICO being the Marine comparison but not nearly as trained and equipped as the AF doing the same thing. likewise, Rangers (75th) are better served as a covering force for units like DevGru and some of the darker units- or spearheading entry into theater by whatever means required and opening a door for MEUSOC operations...

then there is the guy who types all day... w/o him, none of the above function.  Then the dude who fuels and services their vehicles... those that transport them and their gear and plan their logistics.... those that do the actual fighting- the infantry- who also needs all the above on a much larger (albeit less specialized) scale. 

peacetime, the folks that get to kick more doors and trigger time on live targets?  the coast guard- Homeland Security, former DoT.  they have some cool units.  we got to spend some time with them in the Caribbean when they were still 'just' DoT.....  

point is.... everyone has a purpose.  all deserve respect.

Say it to my face you golf playing little punk.
I was a Plankowner aboard the USS John C Stennis. I went to Meridian Mississippi and trained along side Marines...maybe a SEAL or two as well, but I wasn't one. I was an Airman.
I was then a part of VC-6 in Norfolk. If you know anything about them, you'd know they were one of, if not the first, working on top secret unmanned drones.
Don't worry about what I did. That's your problem now.
Only thing you ever did, was practice your golf swing.

I know this much....I swore an oath to the Constitution, and swore to protect those who needed it. The weak and the poor. I take that shit seriously, so next time you want to run your mouth, remember YOUR oath.
