All men are created equal Airborne infantry

Where Im going with this post is I am trying to explain trying to write a speech. I am speaking Sunday at Airborne association dinner amongst our ranks we have naturally army airborne community. A few marines ANGLICO and Force recon from their community. And I am working on this speech and in my walk in life Im humble.

And within our ranks we have those that in political beliefs that extend to the right in voting for trump. The extend part is a PT joke extend to the left so iam trying to work that in with my speech for Sunday.

And I want to add in my speech in the belly of a aircraft a-130 or a c-141 in the dark we operate in night we are all equal regardless of race because were all gonna arrive on DZ leaving aircraft on a static line. A airborne infantry platoon or company is a great equalizer I joke in saying were all ass and trash. We all ended up here the same way in the middle of the night arriving at fort benning on a bus.

Fourteen weeks of osut infantry training then jump school or however you came to be sitting here today as I can only speak from my experience.

And I want to say remember wether we were drafted or we enlisted we swore a oath. To a piece of paper the constitution we did not take oath to a person.

1. Don't leave us gals behind! We are all just human beings

try to make a difference.

I am sure your speech will be as entertaining and enlightening as your writing.

2. Not equally brave, TEB...I, for one, could never - under any circumstances -

jump out of an airplane, and if someone pushed me, I wouldn't live to hit the ground. As for extend to the left, our PT at USAAGS (US Army Adjutant General's School) at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, was always cancelled. I was there for 16 weeks, and I only remember having PT once.

Your colleagues are lucky to have you address them. If you're half as eloquent in your speech as you are here on DU, they'll give you a standing ovation.

4. As you can tell from my rambling

I do not know where to end a sentence my dear brother veteran or when to add a comma why Im not sure I was as kid hit as dyslexic. That does not stop me We share a thread we served were veterans you were drafted I volunteered but I respect you as all veterans.
