During a Fox News townhall with Donald Trump and Sean Hannity, a Marine who had been disfigured by a bomb while serving in the military had an opportunity to tell his personal story and it’s going viral.

The Marine’s name is Corporal Tony Porta. Cpl. Porta shared his story about an IED explosion that killed 2 of his fellow Marines. Porta got severely injured in the blast and faced over 100 surgeries performed at Veterans Administration hospitals. We’re all aware of how bad the VA treats our veterans. So sad.

Cpl. Porta is now a spokesman for ‘VETERANS FOR TRUMP.’

AND  at IJR report:

All eyes were on Corporal Tony Porta as he told his harrowing story of running up against the VA hospital, and he asked the GOP hopeful what he planned to do about the many problems the VA is facing.

“I am really, really hurt about my two friends,” Porta said, looking Trump in the eye. “But I’m here for a reason. I’m here to fight, I’m here to help my fellow veterans.”

In a powerful moment on camera, the vet describes how he was injured, how he struggled to recover, and how he’s being treated by the VA today.

Tonight in his one-on-one with Sean Hannity, Donald J. Trump talked to USMC Cpl. Tony Porta, Spokesperson for Veterans for Trump Coalition.

“I was really struggling. I was in San Antonio for six years, over a hundred surgeries, just to be this way,” Porta said. “I went back home–home wasn’t home anymore.”

Porta described some of the VAs he frequented as “awful,” while giving better marks to a smaller VA he went to later. The Marine vet described waiting for weeks for certain necessary treatments. He also expressed concern for veterans who commit suicide due to PTSD and other struggles.

Corporal Porta then closed with a heartfelt appeal to the Republican candidate.

“When you become president, I don’t want you to work for those guys who are giving tons of money to a lot of people,” he said, adding, “I want you to work for us.”

Wow. So powerful. God bless this hero.

Veterans deserve the best of the best when they come back home after serving our country. They aren’t being treated with respect and dignity under the Obama administration. Obama doesn’t care about our military heroes.

Donald J. Trump does.

God Bless our Veterans and GOD BLESS AMERICA.
