I'm Not In Nor Never Was In The Military.....

I would like to hear from those of you that were or are in the military.

What do those currently in the military think of their Commander-In-Chief Trump?

Do they really think he has their best interests in mind? Do they like the guy that could send them away from their families and friends and into war?

Would they obey him if he chose to ignore the 2020 election and try to remain in office? Would they protect him?

Just curious.

1. I am a veteran; Trump is a warmongering chicken hawk piece of SHIT

I don't know people currently serving....I have a hard time believing they have not by now figured out exactly what Donald Fucking Trump stands for (HIMSELF)

2. I'm a veteran of the Gulf War in 1991, although my unit did not serve in combat.

I despise Trump with every fiber of my being.

I'll bet a lot of active duty and retired soldiers love him, though. I saw so much racism, sexism, homophobia, backwardness, provincialism, and ignorance while I was in the Army. I'm sure the soldiers who possessed those traits absolutely love having Trump as POTUS.

4. We have a great deal to be concerned about.

The military's loyalty to their oaths to the Constitution is not one of them. The military will not support a coup or obey an illegal order to keep anyone in office contrary to an election.

I've been retired from the Army for a few years but I have no doubt about the loyalty of the U.S. military to the Constitution. Military people take a oath to the Constitution. They are taught from their earliest training of the duty to disobey unlawful orders.

5. Navy vet here. The military is like our larger society. Laities, Righties, and all stripe in between

Rumored to tend more right, but I'm not sure of that.
