"Here is a response from Senator Ayotte regarding the purging of our military. I wonder why the President, Sec of State and the DOJ are not held to such standards."

Dear Mrs. Carroll:
Thank you for your comments regarding the dismissal of senior military officers. I appreciate hearing from you.
There is no greater responsibility than leading America's sons and daughters in uniform. The men and women who serve as commanders in the military are among our nation's finest individuals. Commanders are asked to make significant sacrifices on behalf of our country, and they deserve our deepest respect and appreciation.
Because we entrust them with such significant authority and responsibility, they must be held to the highest standards of conduct. When commanders fail to meet these standards, appropriate corrective action must be taken. In recent years, despite the fact that the vast majority of commanders serve with distinction and honor, a number of senior officers have been forced out of the military because of offences ranging from improper relationships and fraudulent gambling to sexual misconduct and negligence of duties.
As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the spouse of a retired Air Force officer, I will continue to monitor DoD's maintenance and enforcement of standards to ensure that commanders are treated fairly and also held to account when they fall short.
Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. As your Senator, it is important for me to hear from you regarding the current issues affecting our nation. Please do not hesitate to be in touch again if I may be of further assistance.

U. S. Senator
When people live in denial they become extremely dangerous, because they fail to recognize the person in the mirror, so ultimately they themselves will seek security as opposed to that they once held in high esteem. Perhaps now we can see why our real leaders have been replaced and certainly with those who have no respect for the scales of justice.
We sure are getting a-lot of good leadership for the Patriot Militia.
You can trust her, if you want to, she has the "R" by her name, but watch what she does, and who and what she supports, not what she "Says". She old a whole lot of people she was a Conservative, and her actions have proved very RINO. "Talks the talk........................."
My congressperson has an R after his name. His name is Ed Royce. However, I believe those Rs really mean RINO! Semper Fi! GySgt Thomas Lakin, USMC Retired
