    Where does it say that a Civilian has to refer to an Army Officer by his rank? Nowhere! Because a Civilian doesn't have to refer to an Army Officer by his rank, he doesn't even have to no what rank he is or what service he is in.

    ...A good reminder that a military uniform does not, in itself, confer honor, integrity, or loyalty to one's country.

    He quoted from a fitness report describing him as a "top one percenter" during his testimony.

    He was commissioned in 1999 and eventually promoted to Lt Col 16 years later in 2015.
    The average time to Lt Col in the Army is 16 years +/- 1 year.

    He is nowhere in the top 1% of his peers or he would have been a bird Colonel by now. He's not even in the top 10% or he would have been early promoted at least once. He's just a run of the mill officer with an agenda who is being glorified by the MSM and Democrats for their own agenda.

    Why is anyone paying any attention to this clown show? Seriously, there are some great sitcom reruns on during the day. "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Peoples Court", "King of Queens", "Seinfeld". Any of these would bring much more meaning to your life.

    A military uniform, like a law enforcement uniform or fireman uniform or nurse/Dr scrubs, in and of itself is just a set of clothes. Any honor, integrity, ethic or moral connotation it carries comes from the man or woman wearing it. Fortunately, throughout our history, most of those wearing it have conducted themselves courageously and honorably.

    He won't be selected for O6. He will retire and sit as a board member for numerous liberal corporations. He will make more money than many of us ever dreamed of.

    If he wants to advance in rank. I'm sure that's promised. More likely

    Who would have authority to make, and more importantly keep, such a promise?

    President Trump was roundly criticized some time back for having two scoops of ice cream. I now know where the rest of that gallon went!

    Bad apples are found in ALL professionals, and McVeigh’s action does not change my views on the LtCol.

    But it shows that being in the Service doesn't exempt someone from being a Dbag and up for criticism.
