President’s actions shameful
To the editor:

For me, Veterans Day is not only a day of remembrance but also a day of appreciation and great sadness. I am proud that we as a people have chosen to honor those we have lost. Proud also that we continue to honor all veterans, especially those who carry physical and mental scars as a result of their service to our country. I am heartened by the fact that the people of our nation do not forget -- even if the leader of our country can not be bothered!

As someone who served for more than 30 years, I was appalled and disgusted by the actions of President Trump this past week. I was appalled when he bypassed honoring those who died in the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, but was shocked
even more when he ignored my brothers and sisters at Arlington National Cemetery on Veterans Day. His excuses were as believable as his draft dodging heel spurs!

Shame on you, Mr. President.

I wish Trump could be shamed.

There is absolutely no bottom to his pit. Whenever we think he has done his worst, he always surprises us with another nadir.

I hope that some day we will be able to clean his filth off the collective shoes of our country.
