Letter: Supporting veterans

To the Editor:

As a military retiree, I take great exception to comments maligning the valor of veterans from attacking Sen. John McCain’s heroism to the most recent comment calling veterans who suffer from PTSD as suggesting vets with PTSD aren’t “strong” and “can’t handle it.”

It is even more disconcerting that the congressional leadership fails to address this lack of respect and ethic. This year, I am voting straight Democratic at the federal level. I would encourage all veterans to consider those candidates who support us versus those who choose not to.
