I have recently picked up a book titled, Samuel Adams -A Life- by Ira Stoll. The connection here is FREEDOM. Samuel Adams, signed the Declaration of Independence, that freed our country from the British. The envelope of four books I have were given to my grandpa, who served over seas fighting in the Second World War.

I will never deny my faith, bring on the battle.
We still have military bibles with camo covers and our unit patch on the front and things like that.

Obama forces Marines to wear female covers

So, this FOX News article tells me, Obama is forcing our male Marines to wear "girly" hats.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...ar-girly-hats/

In response, the official website of the U.S. Marines said that was not true on their official webpage, but FOX has not retracted their article.

www.marines.mil

Considering how many of you watch FOX News... and ONLY FOX News... I guess the Marines must be liars now? I always knew the USMC was a socialist organization...

It really is, at its core, as is the entire DOD... a socialist institution by design and necessity... to protect something else, that other group, the public.

It'll be interesting to see a clarification. This is likely a rogue nut job with an individual agenda. Soldiers have always been able to donate to whoever they want and practice any religion they want. I just attended by nephews graduation from basic training and he said they went to church, Christians, Jews, Muslims and Wicca services were provided.

I could see a problem with military members attending political rallies in uniform, or giving statements with their rank. The military is meant to be apolitical, and as long as a service member is acting as a private individual, not attempting to give the appearance that their branch has favoritism one way or the other, they can do what they want.

Whoever gave that briefing, if accurately described, is probably messing a butt cheek (metaphorically speaking).

It was a briefing given by a First Army unit- FT Hood is a mob site for USAR and ARNG units. First Army is responsible for training and mobilizing those units (as mandated by Congress). Those Training Support Brigades are comprised of multi component training support battalions. One of those battalions was obviously tasked with conducting that briefing. Ultimately, an individual, likely an NCO, was tasked with giving the brief. I suspect that individual took some creative liberties in updating the brief. Whoola- he/she screwed up. That doesn't mean the "military" established new policies-- as the title of your thread clearly implies.

Yes, it really is.

Maybe you should look it up some time, and compare with what the DOD presents.
