While on his deathbed, Dr. Larry Lindsey, a Marine, gave his final farewell to President-elect Donald Trump, Vice President-elect Mike Pence and General James “Mad Dog” Mattis telling them to “give ’em hell” and that it was an honor to fight for them.
“Dr. Larry Lindsey:President Trump, Vice President Pence and General Mattis I would like to say that the greatest honor of my life has been to wage this battle with you. I haven’t been prouder of being a Marine than anything I’ve ever done in my life. Having a hand in some small way in fighting for my country has meant the world to me. There is no greater honor for me than to have great men like you leading this country back to its foundation and back to God. President Trump I have no doubt in my heart and my mind that you will be perhaps the greatest President in the history of our country.
Vice President Pence, I am so honored to call you my vice president. You’re an incredibly good man and probably the only vice president in 150 years to have any brains. And I appreciate that about you.
Your candor and your honesty from both of you men is much needed in this day and time.
General Mattis, it appears that I am now out of ammunition but I continue to fight with my last breath. I do not fear death for I know where I am going and I am only going home for a rest.
It’s you people, the good people of America for whom I cry, my loved ones and my friends, and the sacrifices they must continue to make in this fight to restore our country. Dying is the easy part. Dying is the comforting part if you know who your God is and you know that he holds your hand. And I do. I praise God for a wonderful life. So many wonderful blessings that I have known… I want you to know, each and every one of you that we have taken on a challenge that is only just begun. The real battle lies ahead. And General Mattis, I have one request sir. Give ’em hell and Semper Fi. God Bless.”
Lindsey then passed away on his birthday, December 17, 2016. Two day before then, he received a call from P.J. Schrantz, Trump’s Chief of Security, on behalf of Trump, Mattis and Pence. The three men wanted to see how Lindsey was doing.
