So my aunt (Trump supporter) posted a status about how much she loves that Trump really wants to honor the troops and their families, and how she doesn’t think she has heard another speech that comes from the heart in the same way since Ronald Reagan. She thinks he has their back. Meanwhile I am pissed.
My Father served in the military for 25 years. For 25 years he put his life on hold to serve the American people. He was away from his family. He missed birthdays and important events. And he really liked it. He just retired, because he was passed over for promotion AGAIN and decided that he was done, he didn’t want to do the same stuff for another twenty years.
You know what he told me on the phone? My Father told me that he got his Presidential letter thanking him for his service, and it was UNSIGNED by Trump. So was my Step-mother’s for her sacrifice as a military wife. Trump couldn’t be bothered to sign a letter thanking my Father for his dedication over the last twenty five years. So if he wants to put out a speech saying that he has the troops’ backs, it’s all fucking lip service.
DON’T LET ANYONE TRY TO TELL YOU THAT TRUMP CARES ABOUT THE MEN AND WOMEN IN UNIFORM.

Simultaneously, the lift was augmented by leading-edge slats drooping by 25° and inboard flaps extending to 30°.
