Letter from Retired Generals and Flag Officers


There are 55 retired generals and flag officers that have just released a letter that condemns Donald Trump’s behavior toward women – calling him “utterly unworthy” of the Oval Office.  “If given such power, Donald Trump would create a command climate that is intolerant of women and incompatible with a trained, ready, and honorable military,” the letter said.  “The American people deserve better than a misogynist in chief.  Donald Trump’s behavior is antithetical to American values.”

Among those signing this letter are retired four-star generals and three-star officers, as well as officers from all branches of the armed services.  These officers wrote saying that if Trump were elected; he would more than likely hinder progress that has been made on addressing sexual assault in the military.  

This letter was signed by former officers of both genders, including Lt. Gen. Walter Gaskin, Lt. Gen. John Castellaw, and Lt. Gen. Claudia Kennedy, who was the first woman to reach the Army’s three-star rank.
