No, Clinton family crime syndicate tops all others.

Why wouldn't they? Specifics besides "daddy bought his way out of Vietnam". Specifics like his policies and his support of vets. Tell me, what has he done that Vets, as a whole, should turn away from him and towards...what, Hilary? Biden? HAHAHAHA

I am sure H. Clinton would be a better option for vets, right? [Sarcasm]

Also, a vet here (2000-2014)

However, Trump did explain that Viet Nam was too far away. Yes, Nam was too far away for draft dodging Trump but not for the 70,000 brave Americans who died there.

Why would any God fearing and America loving individual vote for the coward, Trump?
Because Clinton was so much worse.

I voted for Trump because he was the best bet to keep Hillary Clinton and the party behind her out of the White House.

The stuff above? That's nothing compared to a party that wanted to disarm Vets across the board the because, they said, now that they had served their country, they were a threat to their country.

Is it not good that the leader who sends people to war might have never been there? Sure but at the time of the vote, Hillary Clinton was far, far worse so I voted to keep her out of the White House.

Biden will cure cancer if elected President. But if he loses, reckon he won't reveal his secret remedy.

He says he did not support the war. Neither did I, but I was drafted and served my time plus some.
He does not like anyone that gets any kind of government check such as retirement from the service or a VA disability.
In fact just yesterday he is attempting to control benefits to low income people throughout the country.
Well the fact that not a single American life has been lost in a military action ordered by Trump must figure pretty high on the list.
I think I'd vote for someone who was reluctant to see me being killed.

As I married to a man who retired from the military and was raised by a guy who served in the army in a community surrounded by former military men, I am always surprised when I read about veterans supporting Trump.

Those I know value honesty, the rule of law, the ideals set forth in the Declaration of Independence and our Constitution. Everything about Trump is in opposition to their values.

My Dad would be disgusted at the sight of the President being obsequious to a Russian dictator.

My husband is disgusted that kids are being taken from their parents and kept in camps.

This is not what they risked their lives for.

How did you feel about Obama?

But, I'm pretty sure, you voted for slick willie, Hillary, and Obama....

I don't understand it either OP. Trump and his family are the worst representation of the country. From Kushner and his ties to the murderous MBS to the Trumps and their collusive behavior and relationship with Russia and NK. I've met many young men and women that refuse to join the military under Trump. They say "No thank you, I'll wait". Can you blame them? Who wants to start their military career under the most corrupt con president in history? Not one person.

Well, OP doesn't know many vets obviously. I served 7 years in the USAF from 1996-2003. I've remained active in several organizations and more importantly kept in touch with many of the folks I served with. Veterans love Trump and it's not hard to figure out why. He loves America and puts America first, which is usually what motivates people to serve their country by joining the military.

I just returned from a trip to Europe to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day. I was lucky enough to be at Normandy cemetery when Presidents Macron and Trump gave their speeches honoring those who fought in World War II. It was phenomenal and President Trump made me proud to be an American veteran.

Not once American I encountered at that trip was critical of Donald Trump. And yes, I had a Trump t-shirt on. Not one negative comment from anyone of any nationality.

I know it burns the Trump haters, but not everyone is as irrationally unhinged as you are.
