Flagg Youngblood. Credible conservative.

Flagg Youngblood wasn't satisfied to be just another high I.Q. student at Yale University, he also wished to serve Our Country after graduation. Unfortunately, Yale, seemingly unwilling to serve The Nation, had ceased their on-campus ROTC program decades prior to Mr. Youngblood's entrance. This was a small obstacle in A Man's mind: Flagg commuted 70 miles to the town of Storrs to participate in the ROTC program at the University of Connecticut. In 1997, after graduating from Yale, he was commissioned in the Army as an Officer and served on active duty through 2000 with the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment. After transferring to the California Army National Guard, Flagg was deployed to Afghanistan in 2003-04 and eventually awarded the Meritorious Service Medal for his leadership. Currently he is working with the Young America's Foundation, a conservative organization that "is committed to ensuring that increasing numbers of young Americans understand and are inspired by the ideas of individual freedom, a strong national defense, free enterprise, and traditional values." Flagg is the Program Officer tasked with protecting and restoring ROTC programs on college campuses as well as defending the rights of high school and college students to hear from Military Recruiters at their institutes for learning.

Operation Yellow Elephant does not know Mr. Youngblood's thoughts on the current War, nor did we seek to find out. Whatever he believes he has earned full respect for his convictions.

(Currently, Yale University still expects their students wishing to enroll in the Army or Air Force ROTC programs to make the 70 mile trek to UConn if they wish to serve Our Country after graduation. O.Y.E. hopes Yale will one day get the message that making prospective Military Leaders venture 140+ miles is not supporting Our Troops. Anyone unfortunate enough to drive even two miles through a Connecticut snow storm can attest to this absurdity.)

Only a total of twelve Ivy League grads were zapped to death by the peasant rabble in Vietnam.

I thank Mr. Youngblood for his service to our nation, both directly [in uniform] and presently, as part of civil society.

Unlike Yellow Elephant Josh Levy, Mr. Youngblood has earned respect. I'll certainly listen carefully to his thoughts on relevant issues, and even if I don't always agree with him on issues of the day, I certainly respect his patriotism and commitment to our nation.

It's impressive. He could have cut and run, but he didn't.

Somewhat OT, but I'd like to see a source for Gerald's comment. I have trouble believing it.

Connecticut snow storms? Connecticut wouldn't know a snow storm from a bad sneeze.

This man has dishonored his Country, his prior command, and is in no way shape or form fit for duty (military that is!) He should be investigated for dereliction of duty!! Travis AFB participant.....
