Letter: Politicians do not 'fight' for us

I get tired of politicians claiming to “fight” for us.

Maybe they argue and negotiate for us, but unless they serve in our armed forces they did not and will not fight for us.

It’s been a long time since there has been a brawl among our elected pols on our behalf.
