Army Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman is an American hero, honorable soldier, purple heart recipient and holds the highest level of integrity you will ever find in a military officer.

President Trump is a tyrant who demands loyalty to him, not our country. Lt. Col. Vindman took an oath to protect and defend the constitution of the United States of America, not the President of the United States.

Recent events targeting Lt. Col. Vindman are disgusting. His service & sacrifice to our country have caused him consequences never before seen against a military officer because he upheld his oath to protect the integrity of our great nation.

Elected officials should be screaming at the top of their lungs about how a decorated war hero is being treated. Yet we hear nothing. We see nothing. Senator Martha McSally who frequently touts her military experience and support for our troops says nothing. Elected officials from all over the country say nothing, stay silent. What happened to our country? How is it possible that a President can punish our military for doing what is right?

It is hard to even write about this because of how infuriated I am. The President of the United States is going after our nations hero’s for serving this country.

Think about that for a moment, the President is attacking our troops for serving this nation.

Lt. Col. Vindman, I want you to know that I stand beside you in solidarity as a fellow combat Veteran for doing what is right, not what the President wants. Your honor, courage and commitment reflect the true integrity of our military. If not for your integrity, loyalty to our country, we would not have the kind of fragile democracy all of us are so proud of.

Thank you for your service to our great nation. You have honor, our President is a coward & bully.
