Three times recently, President Barack Obama has referred to the U.S. armed services as “my military.”
He said it first in August, according to a transcript posted by the White House: “But as I’ve already said, I have had my military and our team look at a wide range of options.”
In September, The Guardian reported that Obama said: “My military assured me that we could act today, tomorrow, a month from now.”
And on Tuesday, Obama concluded his remarks about Medal of Honor recipient Capt. William D. Swenson by saying: “With that, I’d like my military to read the citations.” Click here to read the transcript of the ceremony on the U.S. Army’s website.
