Capt. Scott O’Grady’s story was the inspiration for the film ‘Behind Enemy Lines’. He’s now calling on Americans to re-elect their 45th President. Here’s why.
The short version — Trump made good promises and kept them.
If you don’t already know Captain O’Grady’s story, here is a quick recap of some highlights, with a link for the longer version.
The Serbs had themselves an upgraded missile system that NATO was not expecting; they used it in an ambush to take down Scott’s F16. The second shot hit his plane right in the belly, and he ejected as the plane came apart.
Lessons learned. O’Grady slept by day, covering himself with camouflage netting, and moved only between midnight and 4 a.m. Armed Serbs were never far away and he often heard gunfire. Once, as he lay hiding, cows grazed at his feet. Equipped with a 121-page survival pamphlet, a radio, a first-aid kit, distress flares and a compass, he put to good use the lessons learned during 17 days of Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape (SERE) training he had undertaken near his hometown of Spokane, Wash. He use d a sponge to soak up rainwater to fill a container. He ate grass and bugs; the survival pamphlet includes instructions to cook insects as big as grasshoppers and to eat them only after removing the hard, crunchy legs. — Read more
The 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit answered the call to go pick him up.
And since the Democrats bent over backward in the Impeachment circus to assure us we cannot EVER question what is said by anyone who has served — this must go double for someone who was trapped alone for 6 days behind enemy lines?
Or do the rules change if the hero in question is trying to support the President, rather than oust him?
We’re guessing Pelosi and Schiff will not be inviting Captain O’Grady to any of their shin-digs any time soon.
He LOVES Trump and wants to see him come back for another 4 years.

He says Trump is restoring the military to where it needs to be.
And Trump is not just TALKING about issues affecting veterans, but he’s actively SOLVING problems.
