Terminal Lance “Lord Mattis III”
November 22, 2016
General James "Mad Dog" Mattis, who is being considered for Secretary of Defense, was very impressive yesterday. A true General's General!

You’re goddamn right.
It goes without saying that literally everyone wants General Mattis to be the next Secretary of Defense. Despite going against tradition, General Mattis is by far the best choice in the history of Defense Secretary for the job. Hell, I would have (and many others) voted for him if he would have ran for president this year. We might not get a President Mattis, but a Secretary of Defense Mattis is the next best thing.
Regardless of how you feel about Trump, General Mattis is as good as they get. Additionally, this would make the Marine Corps very well represented in Washington, with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff being former Commandant Marine General Dunford
(also known as your friend’s scary father).
The world outside of the military community is just now learning who General Mattis is, despite his legendary status amongst the ranks. If you’re reading this and still trying to figure him out, just know that he’s legit as fuck. He is one of the genuinely most intelligent, well-respected men in the history of the armed forces for being pragmatic, firm and real.
Plus, I’ve gotten a couple of photos with him over the years, and he reads Terminal Lance.
(Please don’t murder me for this comic, sir)
