A friend just posted this:
"OUTSTANDING!! I just left my neighbor's house. Devon is with the National Guard for this area. He just got home from an EDRE (Emergency Deployment Readiness Exercise) at the armory. He said that during the exercise, three companies of infantry were polled by questionnaire about the drill and it's purpose. One of the questions was, will you as a member of the National Guard use lethal force against the American public if ordered to do so?
One of the men stepped forward and refused to take the poll and explained that it was a moral judgement on his part and that he could not do so. He then placed his weapon on the ground and fell in behind the formation.
Devon said it was like a waterfall! Every member laid their weapons on the deck and fell in beside the one lone specialist. This included ALL NCO's, STAFF NCO's and SENIOR NCO's. The only people left in front of the original formation was 3 Capt's. 2 Lt's and the BN Commander who was so upset he started having chest pains from yelling and screaming about court martials and disbandment of the unit into other units.
Devon is a Mstr. Sgt and he went with his troops and told them that he could not be prouder of any of them. He was floating while he was telling me this. Maybe we have more than just hope on our side"
