American soldiers and sailors and airmen deserve our unending thanks. Now and always.
On this anniversary of D-Day we need to remember, and pay our respects to the dead, the wounded, and the survivors of such horrendous, heroic events.
And we love to have Donald Trump preach to us about patriotism and standing for the flag.
Between 1964 and 1972 our current commander in chief could have (1) accepted his Vietnam draft status and served or (2) declared his opposition to the war.
It turns out there was a third option. Please don’t think Donald was ‘cowardly’ (a verbal bludgeon he uses often) to find a way out via a questionable ‘bone spur’ claim. He managed to get five deferments, and completely avoided the chance to show off his super-patriotism.
It is of note that, as terribly painful as bone spurs can be, Trump cannot now seem to remember which foot it was that troubled him. Hmm…
Additionally, when you truly love your country, you can find other ways to serve America, even with bone spurs.
So here we are on the anniversary of D-Day, and I recommend very highly you read an opinion piece about the times we live in, written by William Hitchcock…
God Bless America.
