Former Joint Chiefs of Staff Dempsey Blasts Retired Generals Speaking at Conventions

Martin Dempsey didn’t pull punches on retired U.S. generals speaking at political party conventions, per The Hill [1]:

“The military is not a political prize,” Dempsey wrote in a letter to the Washington Post [2] Sunday. “Politicians should take the advice of senior military leaders but keep them off the stage. The American people should not wonder where their military leaders draw the line between military advice and political preference.”
