This was posted to the Army National Guard Regiment in California, SSGT Gary Dubois former Military Police Reserve officer, Infantry soldier and Air Force aerospace technician. Greetings to all of you and thanks for your service. I am also a 100 percent Disabled veteran and created the Restoration pay act , known as the Concurrent Receipt act. It is my observation that President Trump is and has engaged in this conduct. Seditious speech, by retweeting and supporting comments made by " Cowboys for Trump " Stating only good Democrat is a dead one,. Either directly or indirectly. speech used by a Councilmen in Otero New Mexico that included calling for Democrats to be charged with Treason and said " they get to name their poison, to be shot or hanged also is seditious speech. Allowing White Supremacist, the k*k to also use that rhetoric, “It is remarkable,” Clarke said in a statement to POLITICO on Thursday night, “that President Trump objects so vehemently to those speaking out against racial and police violence while embracing gun-toting activists who take siege of government buildings and violent white supremacists who marched in Charlottesville.” These are acts of Sedition against the people. By the persons he is enabling, empowering and inciting. In the Army we used to say , All we see is green, We do not see color. I support that all people is this Nation should be afforded the same opportunities, the same protections under the Constitution. I further state that under Article 114a, reckless endangerment, members of the United States Military have been wrongfully used in that both, Immoral and illegal orders were given to inflict pain and physical assault upon the persons of Peace full protesters that were in fact protected under the Constitution and the President also violated the separation of church and state clause. He also has failed to support the Take care clause within our Constitution, These actions are hostile to the peace of the Nation, They hate and incite others to use violence towards fellow Americans. GOP where d you stand., Cite your laws , cite supreme court decisions , state precedence in law, Thank you. In addition we now have the support of the NFL. We are first and foremost Citizen soldiers that have responsibility to ensure the Peace of the Nation and support that all of us. Have an inalienable right.
I have posted this or messaged this to all Veteran groups What we need is a call to action, VOTE, this is the price we pay when we do not vote.We also need money . We need to go into the Supreme Court and level charge's Not against the Government, But the people within, Governors,Mayors, District Attorney that are not supporting turning over the 3, police officers in violation of Minnesota laws and Federal laws, They are aiding and abetting. Inclusive in this argument is the wreckless endangerment for the Nations peace, putting lives in danger, property, Again we must move forward charging the players, Ferris Vrs the U.S. says you can not sue the Government, However you can sue Departments, agencies and people within it,. All of this we do with respect for law, peacefully and within our legal rights as a people. We Veterans took and oath it is time to live up to that oath. I am the man that created the concurrent receipt , known as the Restoration pay act, Those who backed that legislation and myself were, Senator Harry Reid, Majority Whip at the time, Senator Bob Graham, Former governor , Florida\. Alcee Hastings, Ft, Lauderdale. Fl. We need to call our representatives and those in Minnesota. Together we are at our strongest, I am a member of the DAV.
Thank you
I want to invite all my fellow veterans out to the Miles Through Time Automotive Museum in Clarkesville, GA inside the Old Clarkesville Mill for the grand re-opening of the museum. There will be a cruise-in if you want to bring a ride or just come check out the museum. There is also an antique mall, bowling alley, and restaurant inside the Old Mill. This would be a great opportunity for people to get to meet face to face. I'll see you there. https://www.facebook.com/events/2540595872895816/
#WholeOfGovernment #CostsShifting RECOMMENDATION: I will outline one faulty part of the joint surgeon's arguments and provide evidence-based advice to resolve the remaining issue. The military needs OB-GYN doctors DEPLOYED, who have completed a fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. BECAUSE of the assignments of women infantry, armor, cavalry, and artillery soldiers who are not merely men with slight anatomic variations. Military medicine is not only responsible for providing care to combat troops. The military is also LEGALLY REQUIRED to provide surgical and medical care for civilians, including women, who are injured secondary to combat operations. Plus, surgical and medical care is a vital part of stability operations during post combat operations and humanitarian operations. As the numbers of women increase as combat arms Soldiers, the probability of them sustaining abdominal injuries also increases. The refusal of DoD to perform most surgical procedures in DoD facilities impacts the clinical competence of all members of the trauma care team, both officer and enlisted. Examine the numbers of surgical cases for military members, military family members, and retirees done through TRICARE within 30 miles of a military hospital, and ask WHY? We built a lot of new military hospitals over the past 20 years with state of the art surgical suites, being used for storage. At the same time, we have laws requiring resource sharing between the VA and the military. Why isn't DoD performing more surgeries for the VA to reduce the VA backlog? Why aren't more DoD hospitals near both Inter-State routes and Urban Cities providing level I Trauma care? Why did we either close or transfer all emergency and trauma care from military hospitals on our training bases? When did military training become accident and injury-free? Why did training bases set up helipads to transport all injured to civilian hospitals? Why don't military hospitals handle most trauma, car accident, gunshots, and stabbings when they result in non-reimbursed care to most hospitals and is absorbed by the tax-payer? We've had a lot of Rand Studies on this issue. It is time for Congress to order extensive pilot studies.
