and as of now, i'd have to say no. david was proud to be an american soldier. and i know i'm prejudiced because he was my son, but i don't think he had a mean bone in his body. there is not a day that i don't think about david. when i saw donald trump attack another gold star mother, i felt such a sense of outrage. "she was standing there, she had nothing to say..." if donald trump cannot respect a gold star family, then why would anyone in america think he would respect them. votevets is responsible for the content of this advertising. there's a moment... when you push... past walls... and limits. panting... sweating... smiling. and you realize... you've just pushed past... what you ever thought possible. independence blue cross.
