Warfighter Subordinate Feedback

  1. Just wanted to note I didn't follow what I believed. I followed our laws which is the compilation of what our diverse group of Americans "believe." Anybody in public service who objects to the legal demands based on their own personal beliefs or morality is unfit for public service. It's that simple.

    What I did was follow the law. I did my job. I refused to break our law by violating the rights of another American. It wasn't what I personally thought was right, it was what those who pay me collectively think is right and I did my job as they pay me to do, instead of violating my oath of office and their trust in order to please my boss over the Americans who employ me.
