Open Letter.

This is coolbert:

Eighty-eight for Trump!

Eighty-eight flag officers from the various military services signatories to an "Open Letter" what it is called.

Flag officers either a general or an admiral.

From the New York Times article and as covered by the national news broadcast media:

"Donald Trump Earns Backing of Nearly 90 Military Figures"

"Donald J. Trump’s campaign will release an open letter on Tuesday from about 90 retired generals and military officials endorsing his presidential campaign, urging a 'long overdue course correction in our national security posture.'”

"General Kellogg declined to evaluate past remarks from the military figures, saying they had served their country and had earned their right to speak." - - Keith Kellogg, a retired Army lieutenant general who is advising Mr. Trump on national security.


* Military personnel while ON ACTIVE DUTY restrained from criticism of either the President or members of Congress.

* At least for the Army flag officers carried on the Rolls of the Army for their entire natural existence. Such is my understanding.

* Prior to the Second World War by Gentlemen's Agreement military career officers did not vote nor had declared party affiliation!
