Trump Rolls Out the Top Brass

88 former generals, admirals endorse GOP nominee as best pick for commander-in-chief

by Alicia Hesse | Updated 06 Sep 2016 at 11:21 AMNearly 90 retired admirals and generals announced in an open letter Tuesday that Donald Trump is the strongest choice for president to lead the nation as commander-in-chief.
The letter was organized by Major General Sidney Shachnowa, a 40-year Army veteran and Holocaust survivor, and Rear Admiral Charles Williams. The letter was released ahead of Trump’s campaign event in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where he is anticipated to deliver a speech on veterans affairs.
“We can only make America great again if we ensure our military remains the finest fighting force in the world, and that’s exactly what I will do as president.”
The high-ranking former officers spelled out their intention to vote  for Trump and “urged” fellow Americans to follow suit, emphasizing the need for the next president to take a fresh approach to foreign policy.
“For the past eight years, America’s armed forces have been subjected to a series of ill-considered and debilitating budget cuts, policy choices, and combat operations that have left the superb men and women in uniform less capable of performing their vital missions in the future than we require them to be,” they wrote.
The veterans cited Trump’s ability to more effectively tighten national security."
