American Veterans Vs American Dysphoria
The Soldier is a Weapon, not a Tool; Veteran is a Treasure, but not for a Fool.

As if countering the grandiose delusional disorder of not-so-public uncivil servants wasn´t an effort big enough, now we have to deal with a demoralizing strategic "Dis"-bombing: disorder, dysmorphia, dysphoria - they call it. While Patriot Missiles won´t dispose of “Dis”-missiles, patriotic Veterans dis them back.
For the civilian population heavily hit with Dis-bombs, the term” demoralization” refers to decadence and decay of morality. Those who know war from their kitchen will quote a different definition: a process in psychological warfare meant to erode morale among enemy combatants and noncombatants.
The close relationship between the civilian population and the military was also subjected to slow erosion. Over the years propagandists' misrepresentation of the military resulted in a lack of understanding of valor, lack of respect for sacrifice, and lack of necessary moral ascendancy in youth.
As rightly observed by the Subcommittee on National Security, the Border, and Foreign Affairs Chairman Glenn Grothman (R-Wis.): “The military is not the institution for social experiments and political correctness” and yet, the Brass has corroded too.
In the article “A Woke Military wouldn't have won WW2” (AMAC Exclusive May 29, 2021), David P. Deavel pays a heartfelt tribute to his five uncles who served in WW2 and reflects on the state of today's military: “They fought for a country they did not believe inherently racist or unjust. They fought for a country where the perfection of freedom was sought.”
The Greatest Generation's value system despised today by imperious vandals and rejected by dumbed-down ingrates is still our shield both in combat and in battles of life. Silver Star recipient, an outstanding Marine Carl Dekle wrote his own obituary: "Once a Marine, always a Marine. His desires are to be known for Love of his God, Love for his family, Love for his country and the great State of Florida." What is the legacy of a “modern Marine” ( see www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZtAbdYcH7Q) supposed to be: I axed "Sir" and "Ma´am" for the woke mob?
If you want to make sure that interservice rivalry still exists, look no further: the U.S. Army hopes to tempt future recruits with same-sex marriage recruitment video - link here - www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSpHWBzWaN0.
And the US Navy has hired an active duty “non-binary” drag queen to head military recruitment drive. The video is here - www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnI9GVJqoNk.
While the lowest-ever entry test scores are being explained by “Millennials can't jump,” the “multiple factors” causing the unprecedented military recruitment crisis are clearly not being addressed.
If rusty, the Brass should ask Veterans for help, they know how to stand their ground. Good luck “canceling” a no-nonsense Vietnam Veteran.

Who will protect the “staunch social justice advocates” who fight for funds for “gender-affirming surgeries,” but not for compensation for soldiers exposed to toxic substances?
Over the years systemic neglect turned thousands of homeless and disabled Veterans into a “vulnerable population.” Isn't it ironic that today only veterans can lead the nation out of the fog of war? In the words of the originator of political realism, General Thucydides (History of the Peloponnesian War, circa 410 BCE): “The society that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting by fools.”
