November is Military Family Appreciation Month

Families provide our service members with unconditional love and encouragement. They manage the home front while their loved ones are deployed. As we enter the winter holiday season, let us pay tribute to deployed service members who are separated from their families. The dedication and resilience of military families in an era of sustained mobilizations are an inspiration to us all.

It's because of the NTC Commander I am not able to report information that is vital to your survival whether or not you engage in the activities demonstrated in the YouTube video with the title “Way to Die Number 213: Ass-Hoppered” which I just sent you right before this message. I’m so serious about this it is why I’m pacing disclosing it to you. It’s a matter of life and death. It is up to the Soldiers working undercover at the AUSA in California to help the Pentagon identify and isolate the High Value Enemy Targets throughout California state. Unfortunately my team at the NTC has been suppressing people and thereby information that would have exposed the secret team of women attempting to overthrow the entire planet's governments and male military personnel. Apple, Inc.'s oldest Female Engineers and Oldest Female Lawyers are using their technology infrastructure against their CEO Tim Cook and ALL men at the company. Their sabotage worked in unison with my Commander's military strategy in which they kept me a Prince in Italy and thereby a Foreign Dignitary, Army General and Innocent American Citizen my Commander publicly declared the POC for the United States Hero Class out for all the world's Domestic and International Terrorists to batter. This strategy is Military and Medical Malpractice. All Special Operators working with me either directly or indirectly fighting in the Global War on Terror should be fired if they are not submitting the appropriate complaints all the way up the chain of command to the Joint Chiefs if the Generals or Commander is ignoring them. President Biden cannot afford to keep taking a soft stance on Military Malpractice, Corruption or Espionage. All three are the predominant reason we could not fix any of the problems we've endured in the United States and also the reason why we will never fix any of the current problems in the United States. The Military's "Because I Can be a Bitch" Ideology I endure daily by Female Soldiers refusing to allow the men to help me sums up nicely the military politicking it is necessary for me to engage in to save the country.
