Commenting on the Defense Department’s newly released handbook to train the military on how to integrate transgender people into the services, Lt. Gen. (ret.) William “Jerry” Boykin, former chief of U.S. Army Special Operations Command and a top member of Delta Force, said the primary question is how does this transgender social experiment enhance the ability of the U.S. military to fight and win wars?
“Again it comes back to what is the purpose of the military? What’s their mission? It’s to fight and win wars,” said Gen. Boykin in an Oct. 5 interview on Washington Watch with host Tony Perkins.
“That’s what Douglas McArthur said at West Point in 1962,” said Boykin. “‘Your mission remains determined, fixed, inviolable.’ It is to win the nation’s wars. Ask yourself how does this enhance the ability to win wars?
Earlier in the interview, Boykin said, “This administration has had a devastating impact on our military readiness. And what the Congress should be doing and the president should be doing now in every decision that’s made regarding the military, is the first question should be how does this enhance readiness? The ability to fight and win the nations wars.”
