Two star Major General Harold Greene was killed in Afghanistan on August 8, 2014 while serving his country with pride for 34 years. He was the highest ranking officer in the military killed in action since the Vietnam war.
President Obama has not mentioned anything in regards to this highly decorated soldier yet he spoke highly of Robin Williams who committed suicide.
General Greene was buried August 14 in Arlington National Cemetery. Neither the President, Vice President, Secretary of State nor Secretary of Defense attended the funeral.
President Obama was on vacation, playing golf at Martha's Vineyard. No flags were ordered to half mast for General Greene's death, yet they were for Whitney Houston who, like Robin Williams, committed suicide.
This is very offensive and disrespectful to the veterans who have served our great country. But it should not be surprising.
