Letter: Thank you Sen. McCain, for all you gave us

Troy Haskell re Sen. McCain

Published on August 30, 2018 8:42AM


This may be obvious to some, but I believe it needs to be spoken. I hope Trump supporters can see what most of us knew, or at least felt, before 2016. For the president of the U.S. to say nothing about the passing of Sen. John McCain, not even a “he will be missed” statement, is proof we have a 12-year-old, spoiled-rotten child for a president.

Politics aside, Sen. John McCain has been one of the few men I have been trying to emulate my whole life. He and his actions are one reason I joined the Navy at the age of 16. He never quit. The spirit of his soul and the actions of the man were truly God-given. Rest in peaceful slumber, my hero, and thank you for all you have given us.
