Letter to the Editor

Veteran Decries Gingrich's Non-military Service

web posted January 10, 2012

Dear Editor,
As a Vietnam Veteran and proud American am appalled at Newt Gingrich cowardly attitude about serving Our Country's Military. I was married with one child and had a medical deferment and was classified as 1-Y for the draft. Did this stop me ? NO! I volunteered to proudly serve MY COUNTRY because I knew that I loved America and had a moral duty to serve, at what ever cost.

Mr. Gingrich kept saying after Mr. Paul stated that he was married with two children but still volunteered that he was not eligible for the draft. What made him en-eligible? Was it the fact he was like hundreds of thousand of cowards during the sixties and seventies who used every excuse to serve this GREAT NATION. He is just another career politician that wants to be PRESIDENT of a GREAT Nation and COMMANDER-N-CHIEF of a military force that he was to much of a coward to serve.

He is nothing but a whore mongrel, that trades in his wife like most people trade cars. If he doesn't like what he has he just finds one he likes better.

I am encouraging every Veteran and Active Duty Service Member to show up in protest of this coward coming into our community.
God bless America and our great military and the brave men and women who feel it an honor and duty to serve.
