How much PPE could be purchased for our honorable first responders with $244,000.00? That figure represents the amount American taxpayers squandered when they flew acting Navy Secretary Thomas B. Modly to Guam for him to hide behind a public address system and berate the honorable Capt. Brett Crozier calling him "stupid." Stupid because he put the lives of his crew over the "mission."

This journey was all about the optics of a patriotic and honorable American leaving his crew after being relieved of command, with the imprimatur of this administration and Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. Esper who seems to have forgotten the motto "Duty, Honor (emphasis added), Country" when he strolled out the Thayer Gate at West Point
