2. Hmm trump loves the uneducated

Stars & Stripes was a link to home when I was in Iraq and Okinawa,” wrote Gallego, a Marine veteran. “It’s an A+ indie take on everyday DoD news, f*** ups, and Administration & General Officer BS. No wonder this President wants to cut it. He’s got a fight on his hands.”

Cisneros, a Navy veteran, wrote Stars and Stripes “provides a crucial voice on the DOD, VA, and other military matters.”

Can’t have that no sir

4. One of my dearest conservative frenemies was Stars and Stripes.

Cancer killed him years ago, but I like to think he would have been appalled by Trump.

5. Why? To divert more military money to the fucking wall Trump promised Mexico would pay for?

6. It's a good newspaper for a community that needs and deserves it.

Plus I was on the cover once, and that’s all I’m going to say about that.

7. When I was in the army, Stars and Stripes was a worthless rag.

But it was the only rag (English language) available on our little post. So we read it.

If all military personnel have access to the internet, then maybe S&S isn't as necessary as it used to be. But I think access is limited in some places.

S&S may become just another brick in the wall.
