Your Opinion: Rice comment dishonors service members

June 6th, 2014 by John Cochran, Jefferson City in News

Dear Editor:

Our president's National Security advisor, Susan Rice, tells us that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl served with "honor and distinction." Apparently Sgt. Bergdahl wrote home that he was "ashamed to be an American." Held captive for five years, Bergdahl has been exchanged for five Guantanamo prisoners and he is on his way home.

In the name of political expediency, Rice has dishonored all service men and women who truly have served with honor and distinction, especially those who have lost their lives in military service to this great nation, which the pathetic likes of Bowe Bergdahl is ashamed to be a citizen.

May we please be delivered from any more appearances by Rice on Sunday morning talk shows.
