Senator McCain

Dear Editor,

A distinguished United States Senator, statesman, and Viet Nam war Naval fighter pilot, who suffered serious injury and subsequent torture at the hands of North Viet Nam passed into history, but his legacy remains.

Donald J. Trump had the insolence to state that Senator McCain was not a war hero. Unfortunately, Trump did not acknowledge that he himself was not only a draft dodger but a contemptible failure and a pure coward when this country called on men and women to serve in the military. Trump, Senator McCain never needed an apology from you. Apologize to yourself if you are capable of even that!

God Bless you, Senator, and may you rest in peace.


M.J. Shanshala,
