Immediate past Commandant Robert Neller wrote “A Letter To America” on his Linked-in page, and the website Task and Purpose, which deals with military matters, posted a story about it titled Former Marine commandant on nationwide protests: 'The time for being silent has passed'
after confirming the letter’s authenticity.
Both the story and the letter itself are well worth reading, which is why I have posted links to both.
Please note: this letter is somewhat different than what we have read from General Mattis and Admiral Mullen in the past few days. It is more wide-ranging in some ways. Some might want to dismiss it because of that. I suggest that you don’t.
Let me simply post a few selections from the letter to give you a sense of it. Please continue below the fold to read those selections, if you have not already read both the story and the letter itself.
