Thank you President Donald J. Trump

Posted on 01/27/2018 8:07:25 AM PST by Romans Nine

I just got off the phone with my son. He and his brother enlisted together, went through basic training and now are at SOI. They are in week one. He told me about the weapons system upgrades the Marines are getting in the next few years. Both he and his brother were homeschooled and part of their curriculum was shooting. I bought of them AR’s when they were 10 and 11 years old, they are 15 months different in age. He told me they are getting better night vision, suppressed weapon systems, and upgraded rifles in the next few years.

Last thing he said to me before he hung up was the chatter around the squad bay and from his CO’s is thank God for a President that loves and appreciates the military. I couldn’t agree more.

Thank you FR for all the patriotic support here for the many years that I have been a freeper.

Thank you for rearing such admirable young men. We are blessed by your blessings. The President will do all he can to rebuild our military, and we will do our part by supporting him in that admirable work.

I suspect your post is sarcasm. Irrespective of whether it is or not, these admirable young men are Marines, not government employees. If you don’t understand the difference I feel both pity and scorn for you.

it’s a honest question.

Homeschoolers tend to be independent and self-starting individualists. So it’s a bit of a contradiction to seek employment in the biggest bureaucracy on earth.

Patriots suffer the bureaucracy for the greater good that comes from their service and love of country.

Tell your sons that we here at Free Republic thank them for their service and keeping us safe. God bless them both, their fellow Marines & other service branches, and yes God bless President Trump too.

I was not a Marine, but as career Navy I learned that there is no more forward thinking or self-motivated group of people than U.S. Marines. Just my $.02 worth.

My sons are fine young Christian men who were raised in a country that affords them some of the greatest blessing God ever bestowed on a culture/nation.
They did not need “employment” as both of them had very good paying skilled trade jobs prior to basic training but having said that they wanted to be Marines because of their love of country which allowed their family to have a life greater than the majority of all that ever walked this earth.
They would be Marines and protect and die if necessary for free so you and your fellow United States citizens can continue to enjoy freedom.

You may not understand that but
I would think it would give you hope and that you would be proud of My, now our, boys.

God help us and keep us safe from the limp wristed pacifists that would idlely sit by and watch our country be destroyed by our enemies.

My sons stand to protect your/ our great Republic and Constitution.

Plenty of home schoolers are also very patriotic and there is a ‘love of country’ - especially if their parents love our country.

Simple ....but those who hate our country can’t see that.

OTOH - my wife and I homeschooled 3 children...and 1 served in the Army as a Nurse (..but do idiots making snarky posts about an ‘independent’ person not realize that the military also needs a Medical Corps and a Nurse Corps)....and another serves in the Navy as a submarine officer (same as his father)...(again - is defending our country obnoxious to the snarky poster?)...and the third is serving in the Army.

Just remember that people can sleep safe at night knowing that there are better people than themselves, ready to go into harms way to protect our country.

“ My sons stand to protect your/ our great Republic and Constitution.“

So they’ll refuse overseas action unless Congress declares War as required by our Constitution ?

Honest question, really trying to understand.
