The Heart Behind it
Col. Ghannon Burton retired from the Marine Corps after 30 years of service in December 2021. He was raised in Mississippi, graduated from Mississippi State in 1993, and has returned home after an adventurous and successful career as a F/A-18 Pilot, TopGun Graduate, Test Pilot, and two-time Commander with five combat deployments.
He finished his career at the Pentagon and retired for many reasons, including; vaccine mandates, the “wokeness” that he saw politicizing our service members, and the stolen election. Further, he found it clear that there was a lack of critical thinking in senior leaders. This is in addition to their willingness to go with plans and policies that put service members at unnecessary risk. He believes the botch pull-out from Afghanistan was due to this lack of critical thinking. Our military has promoted compliant leaders, unwilling to take a stand against unwise and unnecessary orders. They are going along with civilian policies that are divisiving and destroying unity in the name of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Now, Burton is retired and grateful to be home in Mississippi. Thanks to everyone who has worked to make Mississippi a great place to come home. However, he remains deeply concerned for the future of our country. He finds it clear that the elites in both parties have sold our country out to the Globalists and the Chinese Communist Party. Our self-appointed “betters” are sowing confusion, division, and chaos to better control us. It has to end, otherwise, we will not survive as a free democratic republic.
