The Secretary of the Navy, Ray Mabus, is an Obama appointee with ties to the Clinton presidency. He has decided the time to screw with the Marine Corps is now.  A January 1, 2016 memo from Mabus to Commandant of the Marine Corps Robert Neller instructed the Corps to begin “gender integration of officer and enlisted training”.

Apparently, Mabus does not understand or care that the Marine Corps knows perfectly well how to train the finest fighting force on planet Earth. The United States Marine Corps does not require or desire the advice of a political appointee. Especially a particular one from the galactic embarrassment that is the Obama Regime.

Stand Up for the Marine Corps, they have been there for you for 240 years.

As the calendar counts down to 2017 it is all too obvious to anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear that Comrade Barry and his myriad minions are going to do everything possible to destroy the foundation of the United States of America. The scorched earth policy now seems to include the Marine Corps.

Below is my letter, verbatim, to Mx. Mabus.  If you love this country and wish to see it returned to its former glory, please, at very least let this political hack know how you feel. Stand up for the Corps! They have been there for you for 240 years.

The Letter:

..we fight our country's battles in the air, on land, and sea.
..we fight our country’s battles in the air, on land, and sea.
Mr. Secretary, (or should I use a gender-neutral title)

I became a United States Marine in 1987, Parris Island Class 1054-87, am a decorated combat veteran and twice Honorably Discharged.

Having just read of your memorandum issued to the Marine Corps regarding “gender neutral” titles and integrated sex training, I am obligated to tell you what a terrible idea that is.

The Marine Corps has been the most ferocious and effective fighting organization on planet Earth for 240 years because they know how to train men. They understand what it takes to create the fighting force needed to protect the United States of America, any time, anywhere. They have proven this time and again for two centuries. The nation calls, the Marines respond.

LEAVE the Marine Corps alone!

They know what they are doing and they do not need interference from outsiders. They do not need the assistance of political appointees nor the counsel of the PC gender-neutral crowd.

Given the fact that the Marine Corps has been so successful in training and preparing men to defend this nation and that it is obvious for all to see, I can only assume that your memo is designed to hinder the Corps, denigrate their ability to properly prepare men for the gravest extreme and weaken them as a whole. That fact speaks volumes about you sir and brings shame upon you and the once proud tradition of the United States Naval Service.

With any respect that you feel you deserve,
Paul G. Markel
