Thanks to President Trump, we now have a chance to rebuild our family and lives.
"The Army has full confidence in our system of justice".
He also said he thinks that once any member of the military must be confirmed by the Senate for a promotion, they are no longer a soldier, but "a politician, and so I think they lose some of their values", said Lorance.
