If he cared about veterans, he would take the time to learn about these special days and he would have an understanding of what they are all about.

The fact that he continues to annually mar with politics, solemn occasions that veterans hold so dear, shows that he truly doesn’t understand the significance of the day or he just doesn’t care.

The fact of the matter is, the only thing he cares about is getting re-elected and if he has to walk all over our veterans, both living and deceased, and our most sacred traditions to do it, he will.
