As a Navy retiree, I absolutely abhor trump's proposal to ban transgender recruits from entering the military. About 15,000 transgender individuals serve in the Armed Forces honorably. This is nothing but meanness on the part of a bigoted old draft dodger. Let those who wish to serve do so. These people are far better Americans than trump has ever been. I urge you and your colleagues to call this out as the shameless bigotry it is, and to stand against it. Thank you.
