To the editor,
Many people in recent history have represented our Commander in Chief on Memorial Day laying the wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.
People such as: George H.W. Bush, Paul Thayer, James Webb, Colin Powell, Dan Quayle, Paul Wolfowitz, Dick Cheney, Joe Biden (in 2010 as President Obama was in Chicago), and Mike Pence in 2019 (and it was televised).
Furthermore, President Trump and First Lady Melania participated in many Memorial Day and D-Day ceremonies and events in Arlington (May 23 placing flags), Japan (May 27 aboard the USS Wasp), England, and France to honor our military personnel and fallen heroes.
So there is no legitimate reason for anyone to single out, criticize, or nitpick President Trump over his trip to Japan.
Let’s show some respect for our President and the Office he holds.
P.S. In response to a recent Letter to the Editor (by Bud Charlick) which was printed in the Record Gazette June 7, 2019.
Ira Pray, Beaumont
