(CNN)– During the debate, Sen. John McCain talked about spending Thanksgiving with troops during a visit to Iraq and said, "Their message to you is - the message of these brave men and women who are serving over there is, 'Let us win.'"
I-Reporter and soldier, Jeff Stevens of Peekskill, New York, sent in this response to McCain:
"As a member of the US Army, it greatly offends me to hear John McCain say things like 'Our troops want to finish the job.' I have never in my few years as a young Soldier in both an active duty and reserve component heard anyone say such things. It is a soldiers job to be neutral and fulfill the duties that the American people task us with. I think it is wrong to fool the American people into thinking that soldiers actually enjoy the brutal environment in Iraq and wish to stay there."
