Even a military presided over by moonbats acknowledges its heroes. They just aren’t heroes in the outmoded Sergeant York fashion.
Lt. Col. Jon Trainer received the prestigious Bronze Star — a medal given for heroic or meritorious achievement in connection with operations against an armed enemy.
Here’s how he earned the award:
Trainer developed a PowerPoint presentation on the proper handling and disposal of Islamic religious material that was seen by every American — military and civilian alike — in Afghanistan. The presentation then was distributed to the U.S. for use in all pre-deployment training.
When US troops burned some Korans that terrorists had been using to write messages to each other, it was seized upon as a pretext to riot. The heroic Lt. Col. Trainer has ensured that this can never happen again.
Trainer, a Westerville [Ohio] resident and nondenominational Christian pastor who’s been chaplain of the local 251st Cyber Engineering Installation Group since 2000, also sought to prevent any future problems by covering what constitutes Islamic religious material in the first place.
“When a Muslim writes down even a few verses from the Quran on a piece of paper,” he explained, “that immediately gets that same protected status.”
That is, whenever incarcerated terrorists want to share info on upcoming attacks, all they have to do is scribble “Allahu Akbar” in the corner and their notes will be treated as sacred texts by the US military.
Any questions on why the war in Afghanistan drags on senselessly with no hope of victory?
