God bless our local veterans' organizations and local officials for honoring our veterans and our war dead. This is a big difference for the disgraceful and dishonorable actions of our president who refused to go to the Belleau Wood ceremony on the Marine Corps birthday. The U.S. Marines had a major impact on winning the war in France in 1918. The U.S. president stayed in his room watching TV while all the rest of the world leaders made the trip in the rain. His chief of staff made the trip. A U.S. general made the trip. Was the draft-dodging president afraid his hair might be messed up? How embarrassing. How self-centered. How un-presidential. How UN-AMERICAN! Semper Fidelis! (Always Faithful!). No faith from the so-called commander-in-chief. Why does he hate our military legacy so much? It would have been better to send a young Marine Corps Private, a rifleman, to represent our country.
