Would you say the same about someone in the upper level of the Biden administration if they were to speak out about Biden's incompetence? What about a whistleblower who tells all about corruption in our government? When do you throw out the mirror and speak up? When do you cease being a member of a team that has incompetent people at the top? How does any of this change when all the speeches are given to a mirror? There are times when speaking out is the only option. We need more who will speak out irrespective of being a member of the team. He is going to pay a tremendous price for speaking out, but I would be the last person to tell him to shut up and sit down, because then nothing will ever change..Although his points were valid, he should have given that speech to the full length mirror, shut his mouth (to the public) and gone back to work. He shouldn't have lost sight of the fact that he is a team member. Now he is a pariah, and has lost his sway, respect, and ability to change things when given the opportunity. I am sure he is a damn fine Marine, but he let his frustration get the best of him.

I did not serve in combat in my short time in the Corps.. I did serve thirty years in the fire service , living with life and death every day, during that time.. Some times in your career you have to take a stand. We make decisions on the spur of the moment and those decisions have consciences..... I have no regrets . I did what I needed to do to save my men and would do it again...Great ethos, but everyone cannot forever remain silent because nothing will ever change.
Sir: Have you ever heard of swept under the rug!!!! When you are not in the command position your view and point are under the rug forgotten and lost.. What about our men that were tested on during WW1 with Mustard gas effects, or the effects of common sexual diseases on our black members during WW2.. Or our members of the military that witness the atom bomb test in the 40's. I'm sorry but no disrespect intended but what political rock did you crawl out from.. Our politicians don't give a rats ass to you or the men that they send to defend our nation.. We are a number and thats all. Some chose to stand up and at great risk to themselves, god bless them.. I need to shut up or i'll be sent to Banned Camp, but we need to wake up to what is happening to our nation... We need to look outside the box.. A simple question, how many sides to a box... You would not believe the number of rookies that say a box has four sides.. What a shame...I am a civilian, but why would he not simply resign, then speak his piece?

In my book he has shown himself to have a higher quality of leadership than those who removed him. Displayed the qualities we should expect from those in leadership roles. Imagine he has held those under him to that same standard and caliber of leadership.If he is a real leader
