My friends from the military that voted for Trump have been oddly

quiet about the Russian hacking. For the most part they joined in the 80s and idolize Reagan. Could it be that this Russian business is a bridge too far for them?

2. One would hope...

as a veteran, I have not supported Repubs since Nixon. They don't support the troops or the vets.

They are, as a class, dead to me.

7. Unfortunately ...

... Republicans seem to get their votes, as well as active duty votes, instead of Democrats. The troubling polls of military personnel before the election saw Trump at around 40 percent with Clinton and Johnson tied for second around 20-25. I'm kind of a loss to explain it, but a lot military vets I know around my age are into Tomi Lahren, Infowars and racism.

3. Please ask them. Engagement isn't a crime, yet. I would hope some

Would come to realize that they are now "sleeping with the enemy."
