Donald Trump doesn’t have the best record on the military. You’ll recall that he used a veterans event to call a journalist a sleaze, lied about the size of his donation to a veterans charity, and bashed a Gold Star family using racist and Islamophobic rhetoric.
Veterans showed up hauling supplies and dragging trailers of wood, fuel for the fires and wood stoves around camp. Besides just standing with the indigenous water protectors during protest actions, the veterans are fanning through the camp to take on responsibilities. Earlier in the week, a group of veterans took it upon themselves to take an epic stand against police for seizing canoes.
