Amen, General Dempsey!

“Military leaders do not belong at political conventions”

Former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin E.Dempsey, penned an important reminder to retired generals. In the Washington Post, he writes:

“The military is not a political prize. Politicians should take the advice of senior military leaders but keep them off the stage. The American people should not wonder where their military leaders draw the line between military advice and political preference. And our nation’s soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines should not wonder about the political leanings and motivations of their leaders.”
