“Nobody likes a long, forced display of emotion. Except Donald Trump.”

“Take Your Military Parade And Drop It In Your Gold-Plated Toilet”Task & Purpose

“Task & Purpose launched in 2014 to provide authentic and unfiltered perspectives on military and veterans issues in the post-9/11 era.”


  1. So Trump wants to have big military parades in D.C., huh! I recommend you see the movie from the past entitled “Z.”

    There are many countries led by dictators, who are mostly supported by the U.S., that have such big military parades to show the people that they have no power and need to keep themselves in place. Trump would surely call these countries S###thole countries. Do you want to see us become one of them? I think not. We must be active and protest this with our Congressional leaders now and not be silent, for silence is complicity.

  2. Right you are. And this is why we thought Senator, and retired US Army officer, and combat veteran Tammy Duckworth’s stance is so important: “I will not be lectured about what our military needs by a five-deferment draft dodger.”
