It does seem fitting given the current Commander in Chiefs total disregard/ignorance for the military.

(At least he can guarantee a vote from those guys. )

I don't think DT personally made this but rather one of the legion of over educated young idiots who can't spell or know what they say!

Very true. DT would have had the main thrust as 'Support our Suckers'.

Hardly surprising - Sec Def posted a 4 July celebratory Tweet of the Reds flying over The Statue of Liberty. This Administration has form for both ignorance and seemingly taking delight in it.

Don't you mean "pravda" in advertising?

Our parent company's marketing department produced an aviation services brochure which included our various airfield engineering design services - airfield pavements, drainage, lighting, etc. Instead of asking us for some photos of airfield pavements etc, they chose some pretty crappy Shutterstock images, one of which was a 3D model or something which seemed to show a 747 taking off from a flooded runway - not quite the impression we would have wished to convey...

The picture has not been linked to any Trump campaign program. It's a fake.

No, that bit at the bottom about the Trump Make America Great Again Committee is probably just an irrelevance.

I did have a look at their small print

Seems to be a good deal, being a fundraiser in the US

Yup. Someone can't spell committee.
Attention to detail, folks.
