Dear Editor:

This is an open letter to Tennessee U.S. Sens. Lamar Alexander and Marcia Blackburn and U.S. Rep. Tim Burchett.

Now is the time to speak up against the smear campaign against an Army combat veteran with a Purple Heart who has integrity and strength to speak truth. The remarks against Lt. Col. Alex Vindman demonstrate the depravity of Trump and company.

Your unwillingness to speak up indicates complicity with the negative remarks being made by Trump, his cronies and Fox News. This strategy should be counterproductive for Republicans, but your silence shows that you approve of slander against a decorated veteran.

Please stand up for this brave man who serves his country well. Please stand up for integrity and patriotism.
