To the editor, 

Donald draft-dodger Trump calls U.S. troops who lost their lives in the war “suckers and losers.” I call them American heroes. These heroes and their families made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country.        

I admire and respect those who were captured and tortured in prisoner-of-war camps, especially Senator John McCain. Trump insulted and disrespected all POWs by calling Senator McCain a loser and saying, “I like people that weren’t captured.”

I’m proud to be a veteran. I’m ashamed of the Commander in Chief.
