This is a copy of a letter sent to Senator Kerry by Major Eric England. See Major E. to Senator Kerry
Please apologize to the troops for telling college students that they should get educated or they would end up "stuck in Iraq."
I am one of the apparent "dummies" who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Before that, I earned two graduate degrees and an undergraduate degree from the US Air Force Academy, having turned down UC Berkeley.
The deployed troops are intelligent, brave patriots who deserve better from politicians who claim to support them.
I encourage you to acknowledge that you were catering to the liberal assumption that people only enter the military because they lack better options.
Just be honest. The troops deserve it. Not very respectfully,
Major Eric Egland
I'm sure that there are lots of these letters out there. Senator Kerry should apologize. The Democrats need to step up to the microphone and call on Sen. Kerry to apologize to men like Major England.
Last but not least, I am very proud of Senator McCain.
