Letter to Editor: Veterans should not vote for Trump


I was a staff sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps with the 1st Medical Battalion, 1st Special Force Service Support Group, 9th Marines.

I was in Vietnam from April 1965 to June 1969.

I have the Bronze Star, Purple Heart and two big holes in me the good Lord didn’t put there.

I can tell you, any person who has been in combat and votes for Donald Trump has lost his or her mind.

Trump said he likes war, made fun of the Purple Heart, put down a prisoner of war and ridiculed a family of a dead soldier. Trump and Russia are too friendly. This man needs to grow up.
