You’re a Lt Col, for fucks sake. Can’t you do anything about it? Resignation of mid-high level patriotic officers only helps fortify the communist infiltration.

He cannot do anything really.

Dude is in charge of a ‘special troops battalion’ haha. It’s the fucking band and other POG units that don’t fall into any practical categories.

Him resigning is kinda dumb but he decided he REALLY didn’t want the vax.

Reaffirming my belief that, like cops, military personnel fall into two categories: Those that can’t do anything, and those that won’t.

Assuming you have never been either?

Ex USAF and was active duty during the early to mid 90’s. This was around the time when they were first kicking around the idea of letting gays in (don’t ask don’t tell) and there was a big backlash about it (at least in the lower rank circles I was in). I was also a dumb af kid who didn’t know how things really worked (still dumb af but to a lesser degree these days, I like to think).

How long will it take to get a patriot back at that rank again after this purge? If it takes 15-20 years, then yes, quitting was the most cowardly way to have gone out, as we lost more than we gained.
