Even though Donald Trump’s transgender military ban caused quite the stir across America, some military servants actually support his decision and have given him the thumbs up.
Such is the case with a 20-year military veteran, who wrote an open statement on the matter.
In order to protect his identity, the veteran presented himself as Craig, fearing that the liberal community will throw rocks at him, calling him a “homophobe” or “transgender hater.”
Take a look at the Facebook update:
As a 20 Year Retired Military Member, this is the right thing to do. Before you call me a homophobe and a transgender hater which I am not, please realize I deal in the school of reality. I could care less if you were born a man or a woman and now want to call yourself something else. That’s the great thing about America and being FREE. The reality of all
this is the transgender community suicide rate is upwards of 40-50%. Now put them in the military and deploy them thousands of miles from their support networks and you can see the recipe for disaster. Before you call President Trump a Homophone or a hater, realize he is listening to his commanders IN the military. That is something President Obama seldom
did if ever. The Military was never meant to be a Social Experiment. Unless you served, which only 1% of Americas Men and Women do, you would not understand.
“Thank you, President Trump.”
As we learned, Craig was a military entity for over two decades, serving the U.S. Air Force as a munitions system specialist. Later on, he became a recruiter.
His sincere statement triggered various opinions on the Internet, most of which were pure support and acknowledgment.
“I served. Wonderful words, Craig,” one veteran responded.
Another echoed that sentiment, saying, “As a veteran myself I totally agree with our President.”
“Our military needs to focus on the defense of our country and not be distracted by issues that have nothing to do with our national defense,” yet another Facebook user responded.
And then there were the haters:
“Who are YOU to deny a person’s right to serve our country? BUT you are for some A**HOLE named TRUMP who DODGED the draft to fight! Now that’s patriotism … WRONG!”
Military veterans also engaged in an online debate about whether this was the right call or not:
Good, thank you Mr President

It is absolutely a good thing. You would not be allowed to join with any other mental illness this is no different.

Good. It does nothing to improve the military; it only distracts.

Then, you have the anti-Trump protesters:
This administration’s directive against the transgender community is intolerable, unjust, and a betrayal of our values. #LGBT
