James Mattis’ final words will leave you speechless

James Mattis resigned as Donald Trump’s Secretary of Defense.

His official decision stunned Washington, D.C.

But his final words as Secretary will leave you speechless.

Donald Trump announced Mattis would leave his post as Secretary of Defense on January 1, 2019.

On New Year’s Eve, Mattis released a letter containing his final words to the troops.

He expressed his gratitude for being able to lead the Department of Defense and asked every Pentagon employee as well as every active duty soldier to “keep the faith” in America’s mission.

Politico reports:

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis bid farewell to the armed forces and other defense employees on his last day on the job, urging them to “keep the faith” and stand by U.S. allies.

In a farewell message, the retired Marine general told Defense Department employees that serving as defense secretary “has been my high honor.”

“Our Department’s leadership, civilian and military, remains in the best possible hands,” Mattis said. “I am confident that each of you remains undistracted from our sworn mission to support and defend the Constitution while protecting our way of life.”

“So keep the faith in our country and hold fast, alongside our allies, aligned against our foes,” Mattis added.

The fake news media took Mattis’ resignation as a sign that Trump’s Presidency was unraveling.

In fact, the opposite is true.

Mattis opposed Trump’s foreign poliy in key areas.

Now the President has a chance to staff his administration with a Secretary of Defense that supports his agenda.

Do you think James Mattis did a good job as Secretary of Defense?

Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.



  1. It is truly shame that our Commander-in-Chief would not listen to the advice from a wise and experienced individual as our former Secretary of Defense. God speed to you General Mattis.

  2. Your comment could also apply to many gutless and ignorant anti-establishment lefty’s also. Time for them to do their service for this country of STFU, period! with over 22 years of active Army service all over the world and combat experience, I feel I have given my “pound of flesh” to this country. But the OATH I took on my enlistment day still holds as much relevance today as it did those many years ago.

  3. I thank General Mattis for his service to our country, both in Uniform, and out of it.
    May you live out your life in peace, security, and comfort.

  4. JFK did want to stop Communism. JFK also saw that Vietnam and other entanglements were a lost cause that would not end well. His plan was to be re-elected them pull everyone out. America had been in Vietnam in some fashion since the 50s and could not change things. So, LBJ builds US troops in Vietnam America actively fights for more than ten years loses 57,000 troops then pulls out. JFK understood this would happen.

  5. Paul i do believe you should get your facts straight before commenting on JFK he was the one who put the troops there.

  6. You are correct and I teach both American History and Political Science as the college level.
