Jack Murphy wrote a piece titled Veterans, not even war heroes, are as sacred as Americans try to pretend they are. As a military brat/spouse of a lifetime to include many, many years, it is easy to understand Jack’s feelings toward John McCain and Thomas McInerney. I have my own issues with #HeroWorship regardless of the job a person holds, especially when it comes to politics, see: The Candidate: Scrutinize every Military Veteran and ask tough, pointed questions.
Additional thoughts about McCain from the late, David H. Hackworth in January 2000:
ARE McCAIN’S HANDLERS PLAYING THE WRONG CARD?
