“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.”

Concur. The Society of Cincinnatus should drum Allen and his ilk out of their membership.
I didn’t like Flynn at the Republican Convention either. Dempsey sure carried enough water for Obama though, so maybe he’s trying to recover a shred of honor.
Thanks JK. Good read:-)
