Boykin supports Trump

A new list of retired senior military officers who endorse Donald Trump for president includes a three-star general who was reprimanded by the Army for disclosing classified information in a 2008 memoir about his career in special operations. Retired Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, a founding member of the Army’s elite Delta Force, is probably the most recognizable name on the list, which includes 88 names and was released Tuesday with a letter in which the signatories said the American people have an “urgently needed opportunity to make a long overdue course correction in our national security posture and policy” by electing Trump president. The letter is seen as an effort to convince voters that the Republican nominee would be a good commander in chief after a number of retired military officers came out against him, but includes several retired officers who have complicated pasts.
