Is the Military Code of Honor Missing from Today’s America Creating a Dangerous Vacuum for Us All?
By Hallie Neill
Copera = the Cop + the Opera Singer welcome Wiley Morgan, Combat Veteran, U.S. Army Retired, to present his Veteran’s Perspective in a robust discussion of hot topics from the Bergdahl case, punishing the military for protecting the innocent, religious freedoms hanging in the balance, creativity not fostered in our schools, and the intolerance of opposing views. Speaking of creativity – we close with a bit of our own in some friendly banter.
We open with Obama’s Rose Garden embrace of Sgt. Bergdhal’s parents after negotiating his release in the controversial prisoner swap. We consider the cost to our military (6 men lost their lives searching for him in Afghanistan), the Army’s recent charges of desertion and misbehavior before the enemy (with a possible court martial ahead) and the photo op/celebration in the Rose Garden. Where is the nexus we wonder.
And where is the wisdom in Obama’s change in the Rules of Engagement in Afghanistan instructing soldiers to ignore child sexual abuse by their Afghan allies? We discuss the reports of US soldiers being forced to retire after disobeying this order by stopping child rapes. Wiley shares the military are trained to “protect the innocent”. So we ask, is child rape cultural – or barbaric? Is the military code of honor that is missing from the current landscape of culture and politics creating a vacuum of danger for America?
We expose the anti-Christian discrimination in the story of the Marine, a cake, a Biblical scripture and the punitive price quoted by a pro-homosexual bakery. And as we lament the lack of tolerance for opposing views, the shutting down of sharing personal beliefs in the workplace, and creativity not encouraged in our schools – we close with a bit of our own.
