Uniformed disgust


To the editor:

As a Vietnam veteran (1967-1968) who watched the Memorial Day celebrations and commemorations, there is something I will never understand. That is, how many decorated soldiers could support and vote for Donald Trump.  

They all know how Donald Trump mocked John McCain, saying he’s not a war hero because he was captured. They also know that Trump told General Mark Milley in Arlington Cemetery that the dead soldiers buried under the white crosses were “suckers.”  

These attacks on American military heroes comes from a man who avoided the military draft with alleged bone spurs. How could any American military veterans support Donald Trump?
