Michael Waltz, a former Special Forces commander who served in Afghanistan and the Middle East, is one of a number of veterans who have recently appeared in ads from groups aiming to prevent Donald Trump from snagging the Republican presidential nomination.
The ads, released by a conservative advocacy group called The American Future Fund, feature veterans calling out Trump for statements about prisoners of war. They end with the text, “Trump's a phony. Stop him now.”
Over the course of his campaign, Trump has shown disrespect to veterans like 2008 presidential candidate and Vietnam prisoner of war Sen. John McCain, whose heroism Trump called into question because he was captured.
“I like people who weren’t captured,” Trump said in July at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa.
In his ad, Waltz said, “Donald Trump hasn’t served in this country a day in his life.”
He also stated that Trump is a draft dodger who has been fed by a silver spoon, and that his comments should be sickening to all service members and veterans.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
Airman 1st Class Isaiah Edwards has been sentenced to 35 years in prison after a military jury found him guilty of murder in connection with the death of a fellow airman in Guam, Air Force officials announced on Tuesday.
A Russian man got drunk as all hell and tried to hijack an airplane on Tuesday, according to Russian news agencies.
So, pretty much your typical day in Siberia. No seriously: As Reuters notes, "drunken incidents involving passengers on commercial flights in Russia are fairly common, though it is unusual for them to result in flights being diverted."
