An Army of One: Deryk Schlessinger
Operation Yellow Elephant joins Our Founder, Jesus' General, in commending the decision of Deryk Schlessinger, son of conservative talk-radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger, to Be A Man! Enlist! in the U.S. Army. Deryk joined in September 2004 and, at age 21, is now serving in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. We thank the Schlessinger family for their service to our country.
Unfortunately for all concerned, Mr. Schlessinger's MySpace page was, to be quite frank, simply appalling and has been taken down at the Army's insistence. If Mr. Schlessinger's MySpace page represents anything other than fictitious thoughts [only], don't the College and Young Republicans, presumably without such issues, have even more of an obligation to Be A Man! Enlist!?
