MEDAL: Killing ISIS with entrenching tools? Yes, please

When it’s time to kill the enemy, use what you got. It could mean “dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools.”

God Bless Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell for these motivating words.

Troxell, the top enlisted adviser for the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, directed these words to ISIS scum. To his credit, he gave them the option of surrendering. But that seems unlikely, and there are plenty of troops more than happy to go with Plan B.

In his message, shared via social media, Troxell succeeded in rousing the troops and boosting morale. His plainspoken prose even evokes the master of quotation, Gen. Jim Mattis.

And just for fun, here’s Troxell’s stunning display from 2016 on WWE.
