Opinion: I lost my legs fighting for America. I want a president who understands service

September 15, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Dan Berschinski, a veteran who was wounded in Afghanistan in 2009 and met with then-Vice President Biden in 2010, writes that he wants our nation to be led by a President who understands the values of service and sacrifice and that person is not Donald Trump.

Across the table was his wife, Jill Biden, and also at the table were two other seriously wounded soldiers and our significant others.

Over the course of the dinner, Vice President Biden, true to form, shared a few folksy stories from his trip.

He listened as the two other soldiers, also recently wounded in combat, and I described what our experiences had been like fighting America's wars.

Like many Americans, I was outraged at a story first reported in The Atlantic, and later confirmed by a Fox News reporter on Twitter, that President Donald Trump believes that soldiers who died and wounded soldiers like me are "suckers" and "losers. "

President Trump can say whatever he likes, but his actions speak for themselves.

Like a shiny new building or a luxury golf course, President Trump seems to value the military primarily for its value to him as a political prop.

He has publicly disparaged the parents of Humayun Khan, an Army captain killed in action in Iraq in 2004, simply because they said Trump wasn't fit to lead while speaking during the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
