I was at Dallas International Airport a couple of years ago and a troop of returning vets, still in their dusty uniforms from Afghanistan offloaded and the crowd went wild with applause. The smiles on the vets, and not a few tears let us know how much they appreciated our response. Yet, one could discern the “thousand click stare” (ask a Vietnam vet what that means) on some of the faces.
For Senator A**hole to compare himself to those outstanding men and women is not only a travesty, but totally dishonest. Senator A**hole may be a combat vet, I don’t know, but I do know that hightailing it to a motel in another state, eating steak and having access to adult beverages is just not the same as being in combat.
