Letters to the editor

Editor, the Advocate:

I read with great concern the letters from the two veterans that had comments about the reports that president Trump called our fallen heroes as losers.

Let’s get the facts straight.

An investigation revealed that the “unknown” sources could not be verified. In other words, they did not exist. Nor could the incident be verified by anyone in the U.S. or European delegation. CNN, MSNBC, New York Times and Washington Post refused to retract the story.

One of our biggest fears as voters is the existence of “uninformed” voters. If we refuse or neglect to obtain the facts by only relying on fake news, this country is in big trouble.

I am a 22-year Navy veteran with many year-long tours to Vietnam, and I support President Trump.

President Trump has been unnecessarily placed under the microscope from the beginning, and now the left is threatening possible impeachment again for President Trump’s constitutional right to select the new Supreme Court justice. Wake up people, enough is enough.

Dean Harwell, Victoria

Trump supporters should look up Malcolm Nance. He is a Navy vet of the 80s and 90s who was in Naval Intelligence, and says he survived 3 assassination attempts. He is on many Youtube videos and is fun to listen to. He has books out on Russian election hacking and evidence that Trump is a Russian asset. He "knows" and I believe him.

Trump’s lack of respect and his mealy mouth have been on display for a long time now. He has demeaned anyone that has questioned his actions or words, including his own family members, and his own presidential appointments. He has divided our nation to the point of conflict. The military and the rest of America consists of both Democrats and Republicans. His slander and disrespect of all things Democrat has put our countries people at odds with each other, for no good reason, except to advance his own foul agenda. The GOP should have had his resignation a long time ago....Glen Ullman

Trump responded in his own words that he was so upset about not going to the ceremony that he called his wife. Why would Trump need to call his wife - she was with him on the trip. Believe Trump’s own words.

Mr. Harwell,

Thank you for your service to our country.

I pray for all of you Viet Nam vets..

my oldest brother served in Army in Viet Nam and was drafted at a young age.

He came back with PTSD and died at age of 32..

The agent orange destroyed his kidneys.

He never had a family.

My dad was a WW 2 vet who served in army with a Purple Heart rewarded.

Now their nephew and grandson who they never met, our youngest son, joined the Airforce right after high school.

He is still in the Air Force.

We all will vote for Trump.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Trump did not say those things about veterans!

Why would he?

Please people ... check all news sources!

Thank veterans all the time for their service!

God bless the USA ❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸

Talk about uninformed! The article originated in the Atlantic magazine, why would he newspapers or CNN have to retract? Jonathan Goldberg, the original author of the article knows the identity of the anonymous source and deemed him credible. Other news outlets like Fox News did the same thing....An anonymous source gave us Watergate.
