I am writing this letter today out of respect for John McCain.

This man was a true American hero. I haven’t always agreed with him, but I have the upmost respect and admiration for him.

I am a combat-wounded Marine who served in Vietnam. Many people got deferments for medical reasons, including Donald Trump.

Not only did John MaCain serve, but he spent over five years as a prisoner of war in a North Vietnamese prison. He has served his country, both as a Navy pilot and a statesman. He is the last of a dying breed.

He has more integrity in his baby toe than Trump has in his whole body. Rest in peace, John McCain. You have served your time in hell.
