It’s insulting to wish Happy Memorial Day

It’s insulting to wish Happy Memorial Day

Dolores Van Detta, Mechanicville

 

On Memorial Day, President Donald Trump’s message to the country was: “Happy Memorial Day.”

Shame on him. For the many, many families who have lost a loved one while serving our country, there’s never a “Happy Memorial Day.”

For the brave men and women serving our country, and who may have lost a friend in combat, there’s never a “Happy Memorial Day.”

For the women and children of the brave men and women serving our country, at home missing their husbands and fathers, there’s never a “Happy Memorial Day.”

The only one who had a “Happy Memorial Day’ was Donald Trump, who seized the opportunity to compliment himself on his so-called accomplishments, Shame, Shame.
