1600 Pennsylvainia Ave
The secret service agents in the lead walk in carrying what looks like P-90's and ak-47's mated and had children. The military men pause as the two
lead agents come to attention. The newly sworn in president walks in...
"At ease gentlemen," He walks over to the window looking out. He pulls out a cigar and one of the agents who followed him lights it for him. He
turns around to the assembled men present. "Before you utter a word Please allow me to lay it out for you gentlemen."
Sitting down he takes a big puff of his cigar, "As you know I did not meet with my predecessor transition team. "
The men in the room grimmaced, "As we sit here the whole world is waiting to see what this darkhorse president does. Well gentlemen, it is this
simple. All of you joined the military roughly in the evening but you checked or resigned ect in the morning."
The older military men in the room broke discipline slightly covering the smiles..
"So you know what my next words are. You owe me time gentlemen, and the orders are given now. " The president could tell the rooms temperature was
slightly there. In their civilian clothes they snapped to attention...
Taking a deep breathe, "You where chosen because you are the best from your respective branches. I can not fix this country without you. And what I
am about to say is going to piss you off.."
The grimace crossed their faces...
"Yes as you notice, some of you are redundant from your branches. You are curious as to what positions you hold, well let me start at the top. As of
this moment Van Riper you are acting Secretary of Defense, McChrystal is the acting COS us army, Marcinko is the acting CNO of US Navy, Burton is
acting COS of the Airforce, and Wiley is the acting commadant of the USMC.""
The men in the roomed nodded as it made sense.
"Sec Def pass the following orders down as they are... First and foremost immediately I am directly ordering General James Mattis to go assume direct
command of both operational forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is to prepare for the arrival of mass reinforcements and keep the situation well in
hand until he receives further orders. His departure is to be yesterday."
Van Riper smiled and repeated back the order.
"Second I want this made damn clear to US Military personnel. We are a professional organization, so as of this moment the issue of sexual preference
is not of any concern to me or those who work for me. All discharges and Court Martial using this as a basis are canceled. All previously discharged
under this may rejoin..."
Their faces showed as thoughts went through their minds...
"Let me make myself damn clear, I demand professionalism. I do not give a rats arse what your feelings are."
Their heads nodded as they realized what type of president they where dealing with. The president looked at Van Riper who grimaced as he repeated the
"Good enough, Third I want this spelled out for all DOD personnel. Here is my sexual harassment policy. It is written in stone. The word is Zero
tolerance. The new procedure is as follows... When a person reports a rape or sexual harassment the first person that hears this does the following.
Get a secondary witness to verify the time a report is taken. If the person verifies the accused is not part of security then the reporter is taken to
medical, the Chaplin’s office, and jag by security. The part they better pay attention to is this. no one in the notified command is allowed to
discuss with any other party the matter brought to their attention. The exception is the investigators or a separate JAG office. If the people
involved have any questions they may talk to a non-involved JAG officer over the issue to answer any questions. intake per A violation of this order
will be treated as mutiny and treason, ARE WE CLEAR?"
All of them swallowed because they had known that this part was coming. The future first Lady had been interviewed by Oprah, post election results.
And the Marine Corps had not liked the scrutiny that resulted from the buried rape case. Van Riper repeated back the orders.
"Van Riper, I want All active field units in the army's command to have most of their commanding officers relieved. Pick any marine you want and
put them in charge.." The President eyed McChrystal, "General McChrystal, you are to go deal with all your subordinates and pass this message. They
have failed me and let me down, and no matter how far the marines have fallen in my eyes the US Army is still not competent to hold the marine
core's units. Furthermore if you can not fix them their will be no more Army operations, for I will turn every Army dollar over to the Marine core.
You tell them they have to re-earn the right to operate as commanders."
"General McCrystal I will have the bear basic requirements for the Army and its personnel issued on the way back for you. It is nothing personal, but
if they do not play ball with you I will screw them over...."
Taking a deep breathe, After seeing the president was serious, "Understood Mr. President."
“Van Ripper, notify Millington that as of this moment females are to automatically become qualified for frontline combat duty. Notify all special
forces training facilities that the next classes are accepting female candidates. This is after the females receive something to prevent pregnancy. My
reasons for this are simple, we are a three A school, all our competition is Five -A and I am feeling the shortage. I need that larger talent base.”
“Yes sir, Mr. President," They all spoke in unison.
"Sec Def, talk with the DoHS. I want all communication by Military officers monitored yesterday. If any of the officers have an issue and object to
any orders do not council them over this. As promised to General Mattis he WILL have the personal for the front lines. For those officers who disagree
with these orders are going to comprise the bulk of the fighting force at the front, which means point."
A half laugh slash grimace came back from the men in the room.
A very tall and big secret service agent bent over and whispered into the Presidents ear. "Thank you agent June. Tell The Recon Colonel, Alexander I
believe, thank you for securing Marine one." The president turned. "General Burton, I want four raptors escorting Marine one to Camp Lejuene. They
have till I get airborne to be in the air..." Smiling a big smile, "Commandant your with me. " With the cigar in his hand, "The rest of you get
into uniform and we will reconvene when I finish with some advance leadership, come to baby jebus training..." The President walked out of the room
blowing smoke out of his mouth in a ring.
