The Honorable Vicente Gonzalez Jr., House of Representatives, generated a mass email as part of his reelection campaign on the 22nd of September for which he owes myself and every veteran an apology.

The email, like many written for Congressional re-election campaigns, attempts to drag those of us former service people into the political fray with both overdone compliments and not-so-veiled insults directed at the other party or the president, all extremely cringe-worthy and insulting to read.
