In 1948, the draft was reinstated and Robertson was given the option of joining the Marine Corps or being drafted into the Army; he opted for the first.
Robertson has described his military service as follows: "We did long, grueling marches to toughen the men, plus refresher training in firearms and bayonet combat." In the same year, he transferred to Korea, "I ended up at the headquarters command of the First Marine Division," says Robertson. "The Division was in combat in the hot and dusty, then bitterly cold portion of North Korea just above the 38th Parallel later identified as the 'Punchbowl' and 'Heartbreak Ridge.' For that service in the Korean War, the Marine Corps awarded me three battle stars for 'action against the enemy.'"
Parts of Robertson's description of his service were later proven to be false. Former Republican Congressman Paul "Pete" McCloskey, Jr., who served with Robertson in Korea, wrote a public letter which said that Robertson was actually spared combat duty when his powerful father, a U.S. Senator, intervened on his behalf, and that Robertson spent most of his time in an office in Japan. According to McCloskey, his time in the service was not in combat but as the "liquor officer" responsible for keeping the officers' clubs supplied with alcohol. Robertson filed a $35 million libel suit against McCloskey in 1986. He dropped the case in 1988, before it came to trial and paid McCloskey's court costs. According to a newspaper report from 1986, Robertson confirmed elements of McCloskey's allegations and said that he never saw front-line duty.

Here is how this works. If the hurricane turns, it was Robertson's powerful prayer. If it doesn't, it was because we didn't have enough faith. I pray for everyone in the path of a major storm and don't ask for donations.
I'm sure he won't be home in Virginia when the hurricane makes landfall though.
As a Christian, I’ll give him a pass on his prayer. However, in the past, Mr Robertson has stated some natural disasters were a punishment from God. If Hurricane Florence hits the 700 Club, what is the logical conclusion. Pat and I live the Christian faith very differently. All people need love, acceptance, forgiveness, encouragement, and understanding. These are the fruits of compassion. Sorry Pat, I think God will let what happens happen. I hope you have the compassion to help those who suffer as a result of the hurricane.
Good, I'm taking my generator, power cords, gas, bottled water, flash lights, medical kit and food supplies back for a refund!
If Robertson thinks this will work, he should to to the shoreline and watch the storm turn around.
Pat of all people should know that for his incantation to work he has to be in a small boat right in front of the hurricane.
And when the storm strikes land.anyway it will be.because his followers didn't have enough faith.

In 1755, an earthquake hit Lisbon while everyone was in church for all saints day. It destroyed 85% of the buildings and triggered a tsunami which killed more people. The prisoners where kept on a hill and all survived and escaped. In the destruction, fires broke out. Tens of thousands of Christians died from church roofs collapsing on them. It triggered a wave of Atheism led by Voltaire's scathing attacks on the church. But, people like to pretend gods exist and bestow wizardly powers on us mortals, so people went back to wasting thier time LARPing the Bible...

Maybe it would help if he stood on the shore just before the hurricane hits and cast his prayers then?
well there IS precedent: "Then Jesus got up and spoke sharp words to the wind and the high waves. The wind stopped blowing and there were no more waves. " but, forgive me, Pat, I don;t think you're him
