A Message to My kids on Memorial Day…
Please remember the Ol’ Man (My Dad) today…33 years active military service, D-Day survivor, two Purple Hearts, Bronze Star, France’s Jubilee of Liberty Medal, Two Legion of Merits and 25 other medals for Combat Bravery and Leadership.
Today, when I think back to Memorial Day and what sacrifices real patriots made in defense of their country, I cannot help but bring to mind our current President’s responses to his military sacrifice and service to this country.
Trump’s answer to sacrifice: “I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve done, I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot,” he said to George Stephanopoulos.
With respect to avoiding the draft 5 times during the Vietnam War, Trump, while being interviewed by radio host, Howard Stern, likened service in Vietnam to the risks associated with dating potentially STD-infected women in the Manhattan dating scene, “It is a dangerous world out there,” observed Trump, “It’s like Vietnam, sort of.
STERN: “Hey it’s your personal Vietnam isn’t it?”
That’s the true “Metal” of the man…the “patriot”…who serves this country as President.
How would you like being in a foxhole with Trump?
Sad. Repugnant. Offensive.
