General’s Controversial Graduation Speech Sparks Riots, 11 Killed
Sand Hill, Fort Benning, Georgia
– Many soldiers and family members are angry over reports of controversial remarks from the Commanding Officer of Fort Benning at a recruit graduation.
Speaking to an assembled crowd of new soldiers and their families at basic training graduation, Major General Robert Brown was reported as “extremely hostile.”
His speech began with the ”standard fluff” about duty, country, and the privileges of serving when such a small percentage of the country chooses a career in the Armed Forces. The speech took a turn, however, when the General reached a point in his remarks, obviously reused from previous ceremonies.
“Look to your left and right towards your brothers in arms,” said General Brown. “You’re all now members of a proud warrior class, and heroes like your fathers before you who-”
The General stopped, took a deep breath and crumpled the sheet before flinging it to the ground.
“**** it! I can’t read **** like this anymore. Listen up you little bald b@stards.”
