The highest rank in the US Army for all enlisted personnel is Sergeant Major of the Army. Only one person at a time is allowed to hold that rank. Currently, that elite rank is held by Daniel A. Dailey. Just below Sergeant Major and next in line for that esteemed rank is Command Sergeant Major, a rank currently held by John Wayne Troxell. Troxell also serves as a Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which in essence, makes him the most senior enlisted member of the Armed Forces.
Earlier this week, Troxell stated that ISIS needs to realize that they only have two options left – surrender or die.
(Fox News) – The Pentagon’s senior enlisted member has drawn the line against ISIS: “surrender or die!”
In a blunt warning to the remaining ISIS fighters, Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Wayne Troxell said the shrinking band of militants could either surrender to the U.S. military or face death.
“ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them,” he wrote in a forceful message on Facebook. “So they have two options, should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die!”
Troxell said the U.S.-led military coalition would provide them safety in the form of a detainee cell, food, a bed and due process if they give themselves up…
Somewhat in the style of President Donald Trump, Troxell didn’t mix his words when he said that any members of ISIS that don’t surrender will die with extreme prejudice. We will kill them with bombs, shoot them in the face or beat them to death with our shovels. Since it’s not like ISIS to surrender, hopefully US and ally troops will be able to carry out Troxell’s warning and wipe ISIS off the face of the planet.
