The Veterans of Foreign Wars blasted Donald Trump for his comments about Ghazala Khan, the mother of a fallen Muslim Army captain, calling the Republican nominee “out-of-bounds,” Politico reports.

Said VFW leader Brian Duffy: “Election year or not, the VFW will not tolerate anyone berating a Gold Star family member for exercising his or her right of speech or expression. There are certain sacrosanct subjects that no amount of wordsmithing can repair once crossed. Giving one’s life to nation is the greatest sacrifice, followed closely by all Gold Star families, who have a right to make their voices heard.”

The New York Times reports Donald Trump received five deferments during the Vietnam war, one for bone spurs and the others for education.

“His experience during the era is drawing new scrutiny after the Muslim American parents of a soldier who was killed in Iraq publicly questioned whether Mr. Trump had ever sacrificed for his country. In an emotional speech at the Democratic National Convention last week, the soldier’s father, Khizr Khan, directly addressed Mr. Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, saying, ‘You have sacrificed nothing and no one.'”

“Mr. Trump’s public statements about his draft experience sometimes conflict with his Selective Service records, and he is often hazy in recalling details.”
