Department of Defense transgender policy

Dear Editor,

There has been some news concerning transgender individuals serving in the U.S. military — transgender, meaning people who cannot determine which sex they are. The common sense people of Whitley County, know how to determine that.

It has come to my attention the Department of Defense is paying for individuals who want to be a sex other than that which they were born, to have their sex changed. Reading on the DOD website, it says, “The mission of the Department of Defense is to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country.” No where does it state its mission is to change people’s sex.

The Rand Corp. has estimated this practice will cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $4 billion over the next 10 years. Being a taxpayer, as you are who are reading this, I am greatly offended this has become an issue. Not to mention my being a DAV, Marines, Vietnam.

Now think of this, people: The $4 billion is just an estimate! Now put some thought into this. Now that the word is out, what is preventing a person who has zero patriotism from enlisting into the military services, with the goal to have you and me pay for their sex change operation? And the $4 billion? Think of what it will balloon to after that! The $4 billion now could easily hit many more billions. Consider time off, drugs, counseling and a two- or four-year enlistment means that person you and I paid to become other than the sex organs they were born with might only serve a fraction of the enlistment! Not even participating to complete the “mission of the DOD.”

I have no intention of taking this sitting down. I have contacted my U.S. Congressional delegation to protest. I have also informed all three of them that I am going to make an issue of this by bringing it to the attention of voters in my area. I cannot do anything about the crackpots Pelosi, Schumer, Waters and Warren. But I can do something about my three congressional representatives.

I have informed them that I am the employer, and they are the employees. As such, I am demanding they take the lead to end this practice of turning men into women, and women into men using my tax dollars. (Remember the mission of the DOD). I have also informed them they will be receiving a lot of calls and letters from their employers directing them to do the same.

I am providing the addresses and phone numbers for these three gentlemen. When you contact them, be polite and respectful. However, record the time and date you made contact, and request a response. Not a bad time to remind Senator Donnelly there is an election coming up, too. We, as a nation, have slaughtered 70 million babies in the womb. That makes us a genocidal nation with no peer. Now, the government wants us to pay for sex changes? Forget it Todd, Joe and Jim.
