Dear Editor:

I want to commend you for the article you wrote in response to the comments made by Donald Trump recently in which he bashed the whole Mexican population. I think Donald Trump should have included that many Mexican immigrants, individuals who were not American citizens, have volunteered for service in the U.S. military and many have lost their lives while serving. And, the sad part for those who survived and returned were not able to secure state or federal employment due to the fact that they were not citizens.

I donít know if Donald Trump ever served in the military and that is not the issue Ė the issue is that he should have acknowledged the fact that many Mexican immigrants have served in the military service of the United States. I know that as a direct fact because there were some serving when I reported for basic training (boot camp) at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo., in March 1964. In a Sunday news show Sen. Ted Cruz stated he supports what Donald Trump said about the Mexican people. It is a sad day when a Spanish-surnamed individual denigrates his own ancestry.
