The idiots that use an occasion such as this to spread their venom mark them forever as the shallow morons they are. A distinguished career such as this American hero had makes me envious, but sad to here of his sudden passing. No, I didn’t know him. I hope Arlington has room for him.

Probably had his subordinates repeat the Pledge of Allegiance while in formation.

I don’t like it I got this feeling he was killed so this selected President will put someone who thinks like him
Mrs. Miller says
How about expressing your condolences instead of expressing your idiocy?
Good point. Not everything is a conspiracy. And I’m not even a Harris/Biden fan.
It’s sad to hear that a fellow military officer has passed away on the job.

Good point we need more info on incidents like this
Col Green dedicated his entire life to honor the Oath he took to Defend our Country and protect our Constitution. He’s a was true American, serving in one of the toughest units the military has. Do not try to muddy this Colonels reputation. Instead why not spend one day doing what he devoted his life to do. Trying walking in his shoes for 1 mile. Airborne Do or Die!! RIP Col. Scott Green.

My guess for the cause of his death will be due to receiving the Covid vaccine.

Do you have to display your ignorance now?
K.B,. Kenney says
Why are you calling people ignorant? Do have information we do not?
It is doubly irresponsible and incredibly ignorant to assert your nonsense as “fact”, when you clearly have no clue what you are talking about. This is not the forum for it, express your condolence and wait for the factual report to to emerge.
Did he have any dirt on the Clintons?
Combat Medic Vietnam says
