Letter: Unclear on heroism

Donald Trump doesn’t know a war hero when he hears what they have done. Why he would choose to denigrate a Muslim family who lost a son in the Iraq War fighting for America is beyond belief.

Why he doesn’t believe John McCain was a “hero,” in prison for six years and refused freedom because he did not want his countrymen left behind, is beyond belief.

Trump was never in the military and never faced danger except maybe from a bank officer; it shows his stupidity.

If Trump became president, he probably never would award medals to heroes, because he would not know one if it was dropped on him. Vote Tim Kaine and Hillary Clinton.
