Do you come from a family with a long tradition of serving in the military? We’d like to hear from you.
In the wake of the tragedy last Sunday, where a drone strike on an American military base in Jordan killed three black American soldiers, we want to know what service means to you and your family.
The drone strike killed Sgt. William Jerome Rivers, 46, of Carrollton, Georgia; Spc. Kennedy Ladon Sanders, 24, of Waycross, Georgia; and Spc. Breonna Alexsondria Moffett, 23, of Savannah, Georgia. All three were reservists.
The drone strike wounded over 40 others.
Star Parker wrote about this tragedy in a recent column, “Freedom is Not Free.”
“The headline is that we have enemies, and these enemies are energized when they perceive the United States as weak and confused,” she wrote. “There is a lot of rhetoric now about so-called ‘globalization’ and ‘endless wars.’ Some call for a retreat inward by our nation and want to label international engagement as not ‘conservative.’ But it is just the opposite.
Alexis de Tocqueville said that America is great bcause it is good. What happens when America stops being good? Star said this doesn’t mean we have to be the world’s policeman, but what happens if we retreat from being a force of good in the world?
Enlisted men and women, veterans, and their families, we want to hear from you. Do you agree with Star and de Tocqueville? Share your experiences and opinions with us.
Thank you for your service to this great country.
