Pentagon Instructs Troops To Say ‘I Am Proud Of My job And My Tank’ During Trump July 4th Event: Report





The Pentagon has reportedly given service members recommended “messages” to say at President Trump’s Fourth of July celebration on the National Mall, Mother Jones reported Wednesday.

Troops working Trump’s “Salute to America” event on Thursday were reportedly given cards with “Dos” and “Don’ts” advising them to “make positive statements” and “stay in your lane” while avoiding “acronyms or jargon” and saying “anything you don’t want to be heard or recorded.”

The messages service members were given include “I am proud to serve this Nation and I am proud to be a Service Member,” “I am proud to honor the Nation and the Armed Forces during this Independence Day Celebration” and “I am proud of my job and my vehicle/tank.”



Trump’s controversial event will include several tanks and a military flyover.

The National Park Service has already diverted nearly $2.5 million typically used to improve its parks to cover the costs, reports The Washington Post.
