As a Vietnam vet (I volunteered to go to Nam in 1967 with the US Army) and a retiree of the US Air Force I would like to rebut the letter of Helen McCoy and all the other Trump haters. Now understand, I am not a fan of Trump, did not think before election he was presidential material and still don't. But yes I voted for him, my options were slim. But as Jimmy Carter and others are starting to realize, no president has ever experienced the hate like Trump. Now, about the young soldier who died and Trump being criticized by his haters for his words. I'm sorry but other president's have said about the same thing. He was absolutely correct and honored that young man with his words, too bad McCoy and other's are using their hate of Trump to dishonor him. Like this young soldier (and what Trump said) I knew what I was getting into, I knew there was a chance of not coming back, but I went anyway just as this young man did and served my country. That's what Trump said--I find no malice in his statement, just honor in the sense that even though the young man knew he would be in harm's way, he went to serve his country anyway. I believe all of those people who are dishonoring this soldier by using him to further their hate of Trump are being despicable and hateful.
