Rest In Peace, Marine

BEAUTIFUL! Before He Passed Away, Marine Recorded Video Message For Trump/Pence!
As a veteran of our military forces, I take the time to salute Dr. Larry Lindsey for his service and this beautiful video before he passed away. He left this message for President-elect Donald Trump, VP-elect Mike Pence and General “Mad Dog” Mattis.

HE FACED THE END WITH THE COURAGE AND DIGNITY THAT SETS PEOPLE LIKE HIM APART.
I’M POSTING THE ENTIRE MESSAGE IN HIS HONOR.

President Trump, Vice President Pence and General Mattis I would like to say that the greatest honor of my life has been to wage this battle with you. I haven’t been prouder to being a Marine than anything I’ve ever done in my life. Having a hand in some small way in fighting for my country has meant the world to me.

There is no greater honor for me than to have great men like you leading this country back to its foundation and back to God. Mr. Trump I have no doubt in my heart and my mind that you will be perhaps the greatest president in the history of our country.

Vice President Pence, I am so honored to call you my vice president. You’re an incredibly good man and probably the only vice president in 150 years to have any brains. And I appreciate that about you.

General Mattis, it appears I am out of ammunition but I continue to fight with my last breath. I do not fear death for I know where I am going and I am only going home for a rest.
It is you people the good people of America for whom I cry, my loved ones and my friends, and the sacrifices they continue to make in this fight for our country. Dying is the easy part. Dying is the comforting part if you know who your God is and you know that he holds your hand. And I do. I praise God for a wonderful life. So many blessings I have known… I want you to know, each and every one of you that we have taken on a challenge that is only just begun. The real battle lies ahead.

And General Mattis, I want to request sir, Give ’em hell and Semper Fi. God Bless.

SHORTLY AFTER HE RECORDED THIS, DR. LINDSEY ANSWERED ROLL CALL FOR THE LAST TIME.

  1. Wow, dusty in here. Thanks for this, Pete!

    A few small errors in the transcript – which I really appreciated, btw – most not worth mentioning, but a few that matter, if someone want to tweak it:

    • Paragraph 1, the only really significant meaning error:

    haven’t been prouder to being a Marine
    should be
    have been prouder of being a Marine

    • At the end of Paragraph 3 should be:

    Your candor and your honesty from both of you men is much needed in this day and time.

    • Paragraph 6:

    this fight for our country
    should be
    this fight to restore our country

    • and

    So many blessings I have known
    should be
    So many wonderful blessings I have known and so many kind and loving people in this country whom I have met during my fight for this country.

    Thanks again, PP.
