A letter written by a U.S. Marine Corps veteran thanking Bernie Sanders for his NO vote on the Iraq War is going viral.

Reddit user CharlieDarwinsFather authored a post titled "An open letter to Bernie Sanders from a Veteran of the Iraq War" and submitted it to the SandersforPresident subreddit, an online community where supporters of the Vermont U.S. Senator share links and information about the democratic socialist presidential candidate. The author was part of combat missions in the second battle of Fallujah in 2005 and 2006, and again in 2007. After thanking Sanders for opposing the Iraq War, he talked about the need for more politicians like Sanders who speak out against the absurdity of such wars and consequently protect the American people from needless violence.
