Letter to the editor: Many veterans support Trump

I have a few comments and corrections on Carl Mochak’s letter “Disagreeing with Trump supporters.”

First off, who do you think you are? You are telling all veterans who support our president that we should be ashamed of ourselves and we should realize everything we fought for means nothing? I am sorry, but I believe that was when President Obama was decimating our military and drawing a line in the sand that he didn’t have the fortitude to back up.

So I’m feeling you’re kind of like one of those snowflakes — you can’t get over Hillary Clinton losing. Our president has done nothing but help to build our military up. For you to say anyone who supports our president is wrong and you’re glad most people in America do not feel the way Trump supporters do, well, that’s just plain wrong.

That is exactly why we elected him as our president. It wasn’t the people who didn’t like him that elected him; it was the people who do like him and like his policies.

I will never, ever be ashamed that I served 10 years in the military and two tours in Vietnam. You, however, sound like you are another hate-filled Democrat who can’t get over Hillary’s loss and Obama’s departure. Maybe you should find out what the facts are before you run your mouth.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
