To the Editor:
This is in response to the letter titled "Veteran not supporting Democrats" in the Sept. 21 issue of the Northwest Herald. I am a retired officer who served in the U.S. Air Force during the Korean War.
I disagree with everything in the letter. In my opinion, our Democrat Senators and local representatives have always supported and respected our military veterans without being told to do so as alleged.
However, I don't respect Donald Trump, or the Republicans in Congress who support him, because he dodged being drafted during the Vietnam War and has publicly demeaned the military men killed in battle and the heroes like John McClain who were POWs by calling them losers.
I will vote for the re-election of Senator Durbin and Rep. Underwood.
