Greitens deploys National Guard to join Trump border security mission

(From Gov. Eric Greitens)

Today, Governor Greitens authorized the deployment of Missouri Army National Guard troops and resources to the southern border in support of Operation Guardian Support. Four Soldiers and a UH-72 Lakota helicopter were deployed to Arizona to assist the Department of Defense in support of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Security Mission, authorized by President Donald J. Trump in April.

Governor Greitens was on-site for their departure, and thanked the Missouri National Guard soldiers deploying.

“This is a critical mission. Missourians are grateful to the President for recognizing the need to secure our borders. We are proud that Missouri troops will play a support role in guarding against terrorism, protecting Americans from cartel violence, and enforcing our immigration laws,” said Governor Eric Greitens.

As in previous missions in the region, including Operation Jump Start from 2006-2008 and Operation Phalanx from 2010-2016, National Guard members will be in a support role, and not conducting law enforcement missions. Missouri Guardsmen assigned to the mission will provide aerial surveillance. The Soldiers are expected to return to Missouri mid-summer.

Oh wow, four whole soldiers. I bet this will totally stem the flow Harvey. I am proud of you for standing up for the people who are standing up for the people who are simply standing up. It is all right to take a knee when you get tired.

Taking a knee for fatigue or health considerations is one thing, taking it in DEFIANCE of our cherished flag, national anthem, and advocating the overthrow of United States of America is NOT acceptable!!

What branch of the service did you serve in Harvey?

Or is this just the latest excessively capitalized spittle flecks?

Greitens may be tending the border himself once he has been impeached. Then there will be five to protect liddle Harvey. Maybe Greitens can blow something else up with his AR-15. That may get him elected as Mexico's governor. Seemed to work for the rednecks in Missouri.

Are you referring to “ Rednecks” in a racist, or biggotted context?
