Watch as Medal of Honor Recipient Calls-Out Vindman as ‘Chow Thief’ and ‘Spotlighter’

I just knew I’ve seen Vindman somewhere else before.

While appearing on the Fox News morning program Fox and Friends Weekend, US Army Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry had some rather harsh things to say of the now re-assigned back to the Pentagon, Lt Col Alexander “Sasha” Vindman.

(L) MSgt Leroy Petry, MOH, US Army, Retired. (R) Someone who wouldn’t make a decent pimple on Petry’s ass.

During the course of the interview, the bona fide war hero touched on specifics such as Vindman’s jumping the chain of command; ignoring the principles of teamwork, selflessness, sacrifice; and ensuring to the welfare and good discipline and order of those under his charge.

“I respect Donald Trump’s actions on escorting him out of the White House because he, as a team player, he should have brought it up through the chain of command and then blown the whistle if it didn’t get approved.”

“So, exactly my insight is, I would fired him too, I can’t trust you on my team, if you can’t bring me things you don’t agree with.”

“I think this, I respect his service, I understand he is Purple Heart recipient. Being a Purple Heart recipient doesn’t make somebody a hero. I’m sorry.”

According to the Master Sergeant, fellow soldiers whom he personally knows who went through Ranger School with Vindman considered him a “chow thief” as well as attempting to “peer out” (students voting out) Vindman for less than professional conduct and questionable leadership traits.

“In ranger school, [they] said he couldn’t be trusted. They tried peering him out. They said, ‘Well, I guess it hasn’t changed much.’ Usually folks that try to make a big statue of something, what we call spotlighters in the military, trying to highlight themselves as a hero or doing something great, and you could do something great just doing your job.”

Bottom line, Sasha Vindman may be a whiz-kid on everything Ukrainian, but he is also one shitty US Army officer.

The All-American mother takes a brave stand against racism…

The family of a fallen Marine hero is accusing a reporter for The Washington Post of attempting to play the Latino race card by trying to trick the family into stating that the combat hero’s Mexican heritage was a factor in him being denied the Medal of Honor, as reported by The Washington Times on Feb. 27, 2014.

Rosa Peralta, mother of the recipient of the Navy Cross Sgt. Rafael Peralta, as well as her youngest son L/Cpl Ricardo Peralta, USMC, are hammering Washington Post reporter Ernesto Londono for repeatedly attempting to get family members to accuse the military hierarchy of denying the Medal of Honor to the Marine Corps martyr because of his Latino lineage.

Hagel again denies combat killed hero Medal of Honor: Not enough ‘proof’

“You should be proud of being an American…”

Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense hasn’t exactly had a very good past few day. Most recently proposing the Armed Forces be cut back to pre-WWII troops strengths, as well as earlier drawing the anger of many active duty and former Marines for shooting down any further discussion of awarding the Medal of Honor to a Marine killed in Iraq who many of his comrades claim he saved their lives, as reported by Fox News on Feb. 24, 2014, both the Jacksonville (NC) Daily News and The Daily Mail (London, UK) on Feb. 23, 2014, and The Washington Post on Feb. 21, 2014.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel announced that he’s chosen not to re-open the case of upgrading Sgt. Rafael Peralta’s Navy Cross (second highest award for personal valor in combat) to the Medal of Honor after “the totality of the evidence does not meet the ‘proof beyond a reasonable doubt’ Medal of Honor award standard.”
