“Your buying time, your a great example for our country right now, it’s got some problems, you know it and I know it. It’s got problems we don’t have in the military. And you just hold the line my fine young soldiers, sailors, airman, and marines. You just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other, showing it, being friendly to one another, that Americans owe to one another, we’re so dog gone lucky to be Americans.”
Mattis gives a uniquely insightful off-the-cuff speech surrounded by his beloved troops.
