Two star Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan on August 8, 2014, while serving his country in pride for 34 years. As of 1972, he was the highest ranking officer in the military killed in action since the Vietnam war. President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier yet he spoke highly of Robin Williams who committed suicide. He was buried August 14, in the Arlington National Cemetary. Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State, nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral. President Obama was on vacation, playing golf at Martha’s Vineyard . No flags were ordered to half mast, yet they were for Whitney Houston who also committed suicide. I find this very offensive and disrespectful to the veterans who have served our great country. Today, President Obama is sending three White House representatives to the funeral of the boy (man) who died in Ferguson, Missouri. But, then again, why does this not surprise me.
