Like ‘the day Osama was killed’: How the military is reacting to Trump’s victory

“More than one person has compared it to the day Osama [Bin Laden] was killed,” said one Army officer, referring to the day the al-Qaeda leader was killed during a raid by U.S. Navy SEALs. “I guess there’s a feeling among soldiers that Trump will care about them and fix everything they see as broken about the Army.”

Outside Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city and the site of a bloody campaign against the Islamic State, BuzzFeed’s Mike Giglio tweeted a few impressions from the soldiers with whom he was embedded.

“Last night no one wanted to sleep. We stayed up on the phones trying to watch results come back,” he quoted one soldier as saying.

“Our TV screen: drone footage on one half, FOX & CNN on the other,” another soldier said.

Hoo-Rah!  “Helmsman, reverse course!”
