Eighty-eight former military leaders, including generals and admiral, endorsed Donald Trump in and open letter Tuesday. It was organized by Major Gen. Sidney Shachnow, a 40-year Army veteran and Holocaust survivor and Rear Admiral Charles Williams.

The letter, which includes four four-star generals and 14 three-star flag officers, criticized the Obama administration’s national security and foreign policies, adding that they believe enemies of the U.S. sense weakness and confusion in the country.

The letter stated that “the 2016 election affords the American people an urgently needed opportunity to make a long-overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy.”

So far Hillary Clinton has the support of U.S. Marine General John Allen, the former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Hillary has quite a record — she destroyed Libya, tried to keep a dictator in charge of Egypt, and  supported the Iran deal which allows them to build a nuclear bomb.

She is also ready to declare war on Russia.

The left-wing mag, the Atlantic said it’s not that impressive because Mitt Romney had 500. Meanwhile Hillary has ONE.

Also included in the letter was Gen. Burwell Bell, a retired four-star general who commanded US forces in Korea from 2006 until his retirement in 2008.

The letter concluded, “Simultaneously, enemies of this country have been emboldened, sensing weakness and irresolution in Washington and opportunities for aggression at our expense and that of other freedom-loving nations.”

“In our professional judgment, the combined effect is potentially extremely perilous. That is especially the case if our government persists in the practices that have brought us to this present pass.”

“For this reason, we support Donald Trump and his commitment to rebuild our military, to secure our borders, to defeat our Islamic supremacist adversaries and restore law and order domestically. We urge our fellow Americans to do the same.”

The signatories are very impressive.

General Schachnow you are undoubtedly a brave and intrepid leader, however your endorsement of the draft dodging, anti-Semitic, anti Immigrant (of which you are one), cheating person is the Nadir of your life. May G-D find it in his heart to forgive you, for I cannot.

While I am sure you will not read this nor even see it, I should explain that my e-mail is named for 2dLT Daniel M. Leahy, FA, Howitzer Battery 1/11thACR KIA 18 April 1969 (52 days in country) 27W L 109, my roommate, fraternity brother and teammate, you shame his memory.

You call this list of generals “impressive?” Just for the record, I know #86, BG Mark D. Scraba. First of all, he is an Army National Guard BG, not US Army. (There is a huge difference). Also, if you ever saw a photo of him, you will not the bare right shoulder – meaning he never deployed to a combat zone. After 20 years of combat, he never left the comfort and safely of National Guard Headquarters in Northern Virginia. He did however “accept” probably the most coveted assignment with the National Guard – a position in Germany from 2009 – 2011. You know the time period when wars were being fought in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I also served at National Guard Headquarters and sought out two tours (28 months) of combat service. Any Soldier who wanted to deploy could have deployed – even BG Scraba. Check out his military resume and note his assignments from 2001 – 2011 when he retired. Schools, Germany, more schooling, wimp assignments in Washington, DC. I bet you will find no US Army BG without a combat patch and several combats strips on their sleeves. And to think BG Scraba will receive the same retirement benefits of those real American heroes. Shame on you Scraba – and great job supporting Trump. Draft dodgers support each other.
