Wednesday morning combat veteran J.R. Salzman said war is no place for the gender confused. The combat vet calls transgenders at war a 'ticking time bomb.'
Salzman took to twitter to recount his experienced in 2006 while he was serving in Iraq. While there he was encountering extreme heat and went through incredible stress. He was stationed at an isolated firebase and faced an extremely intense job.
Everyday was Groundhog Day. Wake up and do the same patrols, the same shifts, every single day. It was so damn hot. 150° in the gun trucks.
Combat Vet Calls Transgenders a 'Ticking Time Bomb'
Per Daily Caller:
“After stepping on each other’s nuts living in the same can for five months, guys were at each other’s throats,” Salzman added. “The stress made it worse.”
For Salzman, the intensity of the war theater is so great that many of the men who were not even suffering from mental issues often snapped, particularly the younger troops. Due to servicemembers being in such close quarters with each other, “any tiny little personal issue they had suddenly became a mountain.” Salzman further pointed out that introducing servicemembers to the team who are “mentally, emotionally, or physically confused or in turmoil” will inevitably lead to people getting killed.
Transgenders in that environment are a “ticking time bomb.”
“Political correctness has absolutely no place in the military,” he said.
These tweets came just after Wednesday when Trump announced that he would not "accept or allow" transgenders serving in the military. The reasons he cited were medical costs and general disruption.
What do you think about Trump's decision and the tweets of this veteran?
