Retired Marine generals have a high regard for each other

Washington Post:
Retired Marine generals touted each other to Trump as Pentagon chief

Longtime colleagues James N. Mattis and John F. Kelly are seen as contenders for a Cabinet position. When President-elect Donald Trump met last weekend with them, each recommended the other as secretary of defense, a source said.
I am not surprised.  They are both successful Marines who are well respected by the troops.  Mattis does have a flare that tends to grab the attention of his troops and his enemies.  I like that.


  1. Flair, not flare, but in war, they may be interchangeable/
