Did You Serve?

My most recent debate brought out a lot of anonymous trolls in support of the Church Maleficent campaign against traditional Catholics.  One of them claimed to be a Marine, as if this was somehow a proof of the veracity of his position.  I challenged him to prove it, which he couldn’t, but in the spirit of transparency I’m posting my own DD-214 here.

Because chronically high arousal levels impact memory and the ability to relate, these kids are also likely to struggle academically and socially.
