Marine Todd: I AM The American Flag, And You’re Disrespecting Me, AMerica
We don’t get much Mail up here at COP Freedom, which is what I call my CHU here at Bagram, because we don’t get much Islamofascism here, either. So it wasn’t till after the DFAC ceremony for my meritorious promotion to 2cond Lieutenant, The Seal Team’s (honorary), that I was shocked to learn from the TV that football players are refusing to stand for the National Anthem on Sunday, GOD’S day, before they do their jobs for this country. (The promotion had to be Honorary, because I am MARSOC all the way through, and also because The Seal Team’s don’t need me making them look bad any more.)
They say its to protest police killings of people, and I am the first to agree with them on this, because theres too much shooting and not enough Marshall Arts being used on Bad Hombres who might just need some extra vitamin T - Todd fists. (Or Vitamin D, “Deportation” lol)
1. Listen to Me
But that’s a distraction from the real issues, here, which are so-called Americans offensing the Flag, and by extension, My Service. I may be late to this debate, but I believe I have a unique insight into this treason, because I am Marine Todd, and I have Fought for your Right to listen to Me.
You see, I defend America from all enmities, foreign and domestic. My Air Force friends know, they call me the Red Falcon. They said it used to be Blue but the changed it to Red to Honor the Color of my Blood, which also is the Color of Free America, on account of the Democrat Party being Blue. (Of course the Democrats would of Dishonored our real Blue Falcons like that.)
But I’m no perfect. I just barely scrapped through College with a 5.0 that my Liberal Professors tried to fail me on, until I bested them at combatives while proving Jesus divinity in a debate using MRE Crackers and Cheese. My point being, I’m not a Smart Man, but I’ am a Man, as sure as I pin myself with my Bronze Stars every morning until my Chest hurts and I need to change my bloody Web Belt, because if that’s what It Takes, I will do It, and That’s what It Takes. To do It. Every Morning..
B. Be Patrioutic!
So maybe I don’t have all the Facts, but it sure seems to me like NFL footballer players are making Baby Marine Jesus cry on purpose, and my military occupational specialty is Oh-no-I’m-not-gonna-let-that-happen, three hundred.
That’s why I’m proud too stand with Presidents Trump and Pence against the Disrespectors and the haters (I can never bring myself to capitalize that word) who Hate America with so much disrespect. Trump and Pence respect my Onion because they know it is the Opinion Of A Veteran, and I respect them so much for respecting my Onion. If I had been a Younger Marine Todd in 1969, I wouldve been Honored to leave my hooch full of Vietnamese Combat Victory Trophies to train Cadets at New York MIlitary Academy and call Cadet Trump Sir.” If the Marines had embedded combat grunts with conservative radio hosts, it would of been an Honor to call Young Matt Pence “SIR” too.
So I dont see why everyone is getting up on Pence for leaving a Football game early because kneeling 49er’s players offensed him. WE need leaders who will Pay any cost for Freedom, and if Freedom costs $250,000 for a 5,000 mile military plane trip to be offended for 70 seconds, who are you going to trust with that kind of trust, Hillarys email’s? Take it from me, a Combat Veteran, with a 170% Disability Rating: I am the Flag, and You are dissing Me.
4. Uniting against the Common Enmity
Its not just the NFL thats making brave combat-blooded wallstanding warriors like me cry. Theres so much Blue on Blue violence, and we vets have to start taking care of each others. LIke when I see Dakota Meyers and Dan Blizzarian attacking each other for whose better at killing active shooters at home in the states:
How about in the wake of a tragedy you actually do something to help instead of vlogging critiquing the people involved

This whole argument is like Angel’s dancing on the Head of a pin — a pin I’m holding between my Teeth as I adjust My windage on the Bad Guy’s with Guns, like I do when I’m MARSOCing or on loan out to The Seal Team’s. I mean, those other guy’s are good — Dakota Meyers can be my wingman anyday, and without Dan Blizzarian we wouldnt have my favorite refreshment, the Dairy Queen Blizzard. But lets just all agree that guns dont kill people, I kill people. Bad people, mostly.
Can we all get along? We have a Common Enemy: the dishonest Media. And football players burning The Flag, which, again, is burning Me. And Hillarys email’s. But mostly the Flag Kneelers who, by kneeling during the Anthem, are burning Flags. It’s all very complicated, but it Hurts the Flag. That’s all You need to know.
I could say more, but its time to get back to The War. Plus, I do all my best posting on Patrols, which are boring for Me, as there aren’t many Enemies left. I’ve killed a lot over the years. Just rember: America is All of Us, especially Our Heroes like Me. Until then, be good to each others, be vigilant against Tyranny, and stomp anyone who Disrespects Our Flag!
Army and Air Force Exchange Service officials are warning soldiers and military families to be aware of scammers using the Exchange's logo.

KABUL (Reuters) - The Islamic State (IS) militant group claimed responsibility on Sunday for a suicide blast at a wedding reception in Afghanistan that killed 63 people, underlining the dangers the country faces even if the Taliban agrees a pact with the United States.
The Saturday night attack came as the Taliban and the United States try to negotiate an agreement on the withdrawal of U.S. forces in exchange for a Taliban commitment on security and peace talks with Afghanistan's U.S.-backed government.
Islamic State fighters, who first appeared in Afghanistan in 2014 and have since made inroads in the east and north, are not involved in the talks. They are battling government and U.S.-led international forces and the Taliban.
The group, in a statement on the messaging website Telegram, claimed responsibility for the attack at a west Kabul wedding hall in a minority Shi'ite neighborhood, saying its bomber had been able to infiltrate the reception and detonate his explosives in the crowd of "infidels".
Calling aviation geeks in New York City: The British are coming.

F-35 Joint Strike Fighters, the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels demonstration teams will also be part of the show.
Frances and Efrain Santiago, natives of Puerto Rico, wanted to show their support last month for protesters back home seeking to oust the island's governor.
The couple flew the flag of Puerto Rico on the garage of their Kissimmee home. It ticked off the homeowners association.
Someone from the Rolling Hills Estates Homeowners Association left a letter at their home, citing a "flag violation" and warning: "Please rectify the listed violation or you may incur a fine."
Frances Santiago, 38, an Army veteran, demanded to know why.
A West Point graduate received a waiver from the U.S. Army to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday, and play in the NFL while serving as an active-duty soldier.
The waiver for 2nd Lt. Brett Toth was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter, who said that Toth signed a three-year deal with the Eagles. Toth graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 2018.
