I am a Navy veteran. I volunteered for the Naval Reserve when I was 17 and in high school. I am 6 months older than Trump and I remember how the draft was a part of life when you turned 18. I was on active duty for 2 1/2 years from 1964 thru 1967, including Hospital Corp A school. The remainder of my active duty was at Mare Island Naval Shipyard in Vallejo, California where nuclear submarines were built.
No, I did not have combat duty. Most who serve in the military do not. But, the jobs we all did at Mare Island and throughout the Navy were important and I am proud to have been a part of that.
The comments that have been made by Trump over the years about the people who serve in the military are disgusting to say the least. I’m sure everyone who was alive in 2016 remembers the comments Trump made about John McCain, and for some reason people still supported him.
That needs to stop – NOW! He is a disgusting human being and not fit to be president and “commander in chief”. Especially for active and retired military, please vote this guy out. He is the “clear and present danger”.
From Retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul Eaton:
“I’m pretty unhappy with you, Mr. Trump. So I’m going to keep this short for your famous short attention span. You have shown disrespect to the military on countless occasions. I am stunned that anybody in the United States military would consider you anything but a ‘loser’ or a ‘sucker.’ You’re no patriot.”
“Our Army, our Navy, our Marine Corps, our Air Force, our Coast Guard. Brave men and women. They’re not just brave. They’re smart and wise. So, Mr. Trump, come Nov. 3, we’re all voting for a real patriot — Joe Biden. And everybody who hears this, please take notice and please vote. Vote Democratic. Our country’s honor depends on it.”
AMEN, General Eaton!
