From a Marine dad:
My son started boot camp for the USMC two weeks ago. He is putting is butt on the line for you and defend the Constitution of the US and defend it from all enemies. He is not asking for your support. He is going into special operations and is willing to die to protect you. A completely incompetent Commander in Chief could put my son in serious jeopardy. American might be resilient, but my son would be put at risk.
