Betrayed Military Has Low Morale…

I posted this three times on my FB and it was immediately erased by someone. I received this FB post and was trying to “share” it. I don’t personally know Michael Yon, but I can only imagine what it feels like to be risking my life for a country that votes in a Communist in exchange for a free phone. Obama’s goal is to collapse the military. America is dead, so who is our military protecting?

Important Message from Marine Field Grade Officer

This officer served in Afghanistan. I publish his email with permission, but withhold his name for obvious reasons. PLEASE FORWARD THIS ONE:


…the election has put a damper on my motivation to contribute. What I would really like to write about is the loss of faith and confidence in our administration and. I found myself seriously considering resigning my commission last week and I haven’t spoken to a single one of my peers that doesn’t feel similarly.

I am very concerned that we’re reaching a point where many people like me are seriously questioning why they would risk everything in defense of a country that they no longer recognize and in service to an administration that will sacrifice American lives and careers for politics without batting an eye. But of course I can’t really write about that until I retire next year.

Maybe I’m being overly dramatic, but the debacle in [Afghanistan], 10 years of General and Flag officers failing to lead us, sequestration, the discussions about significantly scaling back retirement benefits for military members and the significant decrease in funding available for training, leads me to believe that we are facing a perfect storm that will decimate morale and will cause a massive exodus of the good people from military service.

I think there are a lot of us who feel betrayed by a clueless, selfish nation that thinks that because they say “thank you” to a veteran from time to time, we will continue to do the heavy lifting and they can keep maxing out the credit card at the mall. That scares the hell out of me.

Anyway, sorry for the rant. As always, your thoughts on any of this are of great interest to me…

    Of course morale is low. You think it’s bad having him for president, try having him as your boss!

  • randyg.

    to the members of the military, i sincerely apologize for what our nation has put you through. it is inexcusable for this country to elect a communist as the comander in chief of our fighting forces.

    Sir; If you give up the ship, who will man her?

    As a combat veteran that voted for Obama, take a look at the policies of the Republican Party over the past few years, in particular David Shweikart and Ben Quayle of Arizona that “high fived” each other after reducing combat pay for soldiers $180, a month.

    Obama has actually been a good commander in chief. So drop the tissue issues and carry on soldier.

    This is not good. To have a Military with such low morale. Thanks to these Brave Men and Women we can go to sleep at night. Obama has to be the worst Military Commander in History. All these different name he puts on terrorism. Why the hell is he trying to prove. The Middle East is out of control. He is going to drag America into a War it has never thought would happen.

    Michael Yon, I am a retired enlisted man and a Vietnam Veteran. When I enlisted I swore an oath to defend and protect the United States Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign AND domestic. The US Constitution and the US government have been overthrown by unscrupulous men whom I don’t consider to be Americans. We, as US military men and women swore to obey the LAWFUL orders of those appointed over us.

    Not all of us have sold out so don’t give up hope and especially God.

    I did not vote for the communist Obama. I am one of those who has to pay for all the goodies that Obama is using to buy votes. The people who get the free stuff believe the money comes from heaven. I work for it and so will everyone else when he raises taxes to a point that there are no jobs and the economy fails all together. The government is broke and printing money to pay their bills. Hyperinflation is a real possibility. It means the money will be worthless. Those with savings will lose it all. Those who live on a fixed income will starve. Thank you Democrats and thank you Obama for destroying the country

    • TxGCB

      That has been the intent of Obama all along. Destroy the boomers and what is left of WWII/ Korea generation. Destroy their savings, healthcare and hopefully soon they will all die. Then our people can be the victors. What OBAMA does not realize, his people will not be able to make it without the old angry white men or women. The Hispanics will survive because of their work ethic and their return to faith.

  • BadOne

    Wow. I haven’t read something like this since I retired in disgust from the Air Force 20+ years ago only it was my leaders who were neglecting their duties to avoid a general yelling at them.

  • Nadine

    This is just wrong what BO is doing to our men & women & ALL OF US!

    Being a retired Military Member (TSgt., USAF, 20 yrs, 1 mo, & 14 days of Active Duty Time) I can almost feel some of the “Misery” our Proud Military Members are going thru. This Ficticious Commander In Chief is nothing more than a Muslim IMAM wearing Western style clothing while pretending to be a President of the most Powerful Nation on Earth. Our Nation is still the most Powerful Nation but Obama is grinding it down the Garbage Drains, more and more every day that he is in Office. The only way that I see for these United States of America to stop this Dictator and Tyrant from destroying the U.S.A., completely, is for our Military Top Brass and our leading top Congressional Leaders, to come together for a Military Coup. Can they do that?? I don’t know, it may be too late, but it is worth a try. You can bet that ALL of us Ex-Military Members will still fight for our Great Nation, with the exception of some of the talented Black Members and some of the other Nationalities. Thank you for your time. TSgt., USAF Retired.
