In 2015, Republican Donald Trump said John McCain, a Vietnam War POW, wasn’t a war hero. I was incensed! My uncle, Sam Lyle, was a POW in Germany during World War II. I couldn’t believe that any U.S. citizen, regardless of party, would vote for Trump after that outrageous statement!
The Atlantic’s article of Sept. 3 reignited my fury! How can a person who disparages military leaders and service members, our veterans, and the fallen who made the ultimate sacrifice be reelected! I also recalled President Donald Trump’s nonresponse to this summer’s reports on Russian bounties being paid to kill American troops in Afghanistan.
As a lifelong Democrat who first voted 55 years ago, I ask you to vote for Joe Biden for President. Joe demonstrates compassion and respect for the military. Electing Joe will restore the needed dignity and global leadership to the office of the President.
