The Outrage Is Real For Many Who Served

In response to Outraged?:

When I first saw the story making waves, yesterday, I too wondered if it was much ado about – well – not a very big deal, perhaps spurred on by Obama Derangement Syndrome.  

It wouldn’t be the first time the “outrageous outrage” machine kicked into high gear over something trivial – something I see on Twitter all the time.

But then I contacted my friend Mike Banzet, an Air Force vet for his take on it, and saw the reactions of other military folks online. And I came to the conclusion that their “outrage” is in fact genuine. It’s not put on. It’s not “dishonest” or “knee-jerk.”

Banzet, who served in the United States Air Force for 22 years, relayed the following:

 I, personally have saluted long silver boxes as I transported 2 people and one “un associated portions” from the desert to Germany.  I managed not to have a drink in my hand. Please.

Let people know that this kind of disdain is not free.


-Swallows hard-


How do you think I feel?

Similar sentiments were expressed on Twitter. Here are some samples via Twitchy:

Former Secret Service Agent, Dan Bongino:

Was the “latte salute” a full blown scandal? No, of course not. But it’s also not a trivial thing when so many in the US military are genuinely offended by it.
That’s why I chose to write about it.
