Trump dodged the draft and denigrated a tortured POW American war hero. Sadly, some veterans voted for him.

Becoming a veteran does not automatically result in a significant increase one's IQ, nor does being a veteran automatically grant one the ability to distinguish the difference between being a trump supporter and being a patriot that puts the well being of one's country ahead of party and trump.

The fact that many veterans voted for Cadet Bonespurs is evidence that becoming a veteran doesn't increase intelligence or reasoning skills...

Isn't that off-topic?  But Trump isn't the only President who avoided the draft but went to Vietnam while in office.

Great points in your post. What ever happened to the Huge raise promised to our service personnel. Olderscout66, I thought Trump was taking care of them. 


Military pay raises come from Congress, not the President.  The pay scale for Coast Guard is separate from the military.


Protect trump at any cost !


 

Now that has nothing to do with my post.  I was just stating the facts in reply to the poster that military pay raises come from Congress, not the President, who ever he/she might be.

Great points in your post. What ever happened to the Huge raise promised to our service personnel. Olderscout66, I thought Trump was taking care of them.  Do you or anyone else have any updates here. The small group I volunteer for is still helping out members of the Coast Guard and their families.
