As a follow up to this weeks “Motto Monday” video, yes
America is at war….at least your Marines are. It’s amazing how some leadership
is saying we (meaning the armed forces) fell short. Hmmm interesting, I thought
in leadership you never blamed the junior guy and as a leader took the
blame. Guess that doesn’t apply in DC.

Well my fellow warriors, I know I didnt fall short of shit while I was there numerous times and as I remember the warriors to my right & left didnt fall short (especially those that gave all and arent here with us today). I think "we fell short" could have been worded a bit differently. But it wasnt.
Time for a C-Gar for those of us who didnt "fall short".
