Donald Trump Gives 200 Marines A Ride Home

May 19, 2016

We or at least I read constantly pious, sanctimonious folks such as Erick Erickson’s mindless rants against Donald Trump. Incredibly vicious vitriol by such a “Christian” man. Others who claim Trump cares for no one but himself and is arrogant, crass, brash, rude, etc. etc.

Well, you know, when you’re blinded by the light of your own self-worth, you won’t see anything other than your self.

Here’s a little tid-bit illustrating that Trump actually does care for others …

200 Stranded Marines Needed A Plane Ride Home, Here’s How Donald Trump Responded

When Corporal Ryan Stickney and 200 of his fellow Marines prepared to return to their families after Operation Desert Storm in 1991, a logistics error forced them to turn to a surprising source for a ride home: Donald J. Trump.

Today, Stickney would like to say “thank you.”

Stickney (left), was a squad leader in a TOW company of a Marine reserve unit based in Miami, FL and spent approximately six months in Saudi Arabia during the Gulf War between 1990 and 1991.

Upon his unit’s return to the United States, the former Marine says the group spent several weeks decompressing at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina before heading back to Miami.

Stickney recalls being told that a mistake had been made within the logistics unit and that an aircraft wasn’t available to take the Marines home on their scheduled departure date.

This—according to Stickney—is where Donald Trump comes in.

“The way the story was told to us was that Mr. Trump found out about it and sent the airline down to take care of us. And that’s all we knew….I remember asking ‘Who is Donald Trump?’ I truly didn’t know anything about him,” the former Marine said.

Corporal Stickney snapped a photo to remember the day by:

    Yeah, I’ve read who majority of military support. And well if their votes don’t get lost from overseas. Also in the news Pajama Boy happy that HIV DNA can be deleted. And politicians can be canned and sold for potted meat. Should take care of kicking the can down the road. 🙂 O Happy Days!

    What a week. Two childhood lessons fizzling out. Boy/ Girl bathrooms separate and don’t accept a ride from a stranger. 🙂
