Trump should give commencement speech
Susanne Morrow thinks “Trump selfish to have cadets return”
and that his speech would be “all about himself.” I am inclined to negative
information about Trump since I have vowed not to vote for him again, but I
have a stronger inclination to the truth.
How many cadets have you asked whether they want a
graduation? I see in the Appeal and my family that grads want to have
ceremonies. How many academy speeches by President Trump have you listened to?
I thought so. I heard one that reviewed 250 years of American military history
(learned in military academy?) and was very interesting and informative. There
was no mention of himself or family.
Regarding the attack that Trump is “morbidly obese” he is at
the most moderately obese and most likely overweight. At 6'4" morbid
obesity would require a weight of 328. I seem to recall his doctor saying he
weighed 100 pounds less than that. Search
"difference-between-obesity-morbid-obesity" and you will get a pretty
chart that will answer all your questions.
Finally, my family military history is as irrelevant as
Susanne's family military history, except for my older brother who had no
military history. He received a coveted appointment to the Air Force Academy
from 5th District (Ohio) Congressman Del Latta. When he took his physical he
was disqualified for flat feet, notwithstanding high school track and cross
country, and 5-mile hikes several days a week at age 69.
You clearly aren't receiving enough submissions.

Farmers Insurance helps FISH
Farmers Insurance Northern Nevada's District office in
Carson City nominated and secured a $1,500 grant for Friends In Service Helping
(FISH), to give additional support during the COVID-19 crisis. Farmers
corporate, as well as local agents, are committed to giving back to our
communities. “As a Farmers district manager, it’s a privilege to continue

Andrews. FISH has had an increase in the number of people needing food, as well
as additional resources. The money will be used to fund this increase.
Thank you to Dr. Hardman
A shout out to Paul Hardman DMD RC here in Carson City. I
went to see him for a simple relining – which turned into an extremely
completed, time-consuming and very expensive visit.
I could not believe it when he so generously gave me a big
discount and took care of me right there – not asking me to make another
I want to thank him and remind all of us- this is why we
live here – blessed to have such caring neighbors, friends and our amazing
small business men and women ...
Thank you and God bless you !
Trump is not a ‘draft dodger’
In a recent Letter to the Editor the author called President
Trump a "Draft Dodger.” Sorry but that is completely untrue and a
consistent fable concocted by the Democrat Party as a way to besmirch the president.
Unfortunately the actual facts do not bear out the lie. Selective Service
records obtained from the National Archives by The Smoking Gun in 2011 reveal
the following history of his draft eligibility: July 1964 he received a 2-S
(College) deferment; in December 1965 a deferment of 2-S; on 22 November 1966
he was classified 1-A (eligible for the draft); His 2-S deferment was renewed
on 13 December 1966; There is no records for 1967 but Trump received his fourth
and final college deferment on 16 January 1968. After graduating from Wharton
College, he was reclassified 1-A on 9 July 1968. Trump underwent an Armed
Forces physical examination (with a result listed only as “DISQ”) on 19
September 1968 and was reclassified 1-Y (qualified for service only in time of
war or national emergency) on 15 October 1968. Vietnam was declared a Conflict,
not a War.
