Veteran raises money to send Trump to a war zone so he can earn an actual Purple Heart

To win a Purple Heart takes courage, strength and, sometimes, a GoFundMe campaign.

Cameron Kerr is a decorated Army veteran who isn't too pleased with Trump's recent comments about America's veterans. After a veteran handed his Purple Heart to Trump at a rally on Tuesday, Trump came under fire for saying, "I always wanted to get the Purple Heart. This was much easier."

Kerr decided to set up a GoFundMe page to give Trump a chance to win a Purple Heart the old-fashioned way: by going to a war zone and earning it.

Kerr made his aims clear on his GoFundMe page:

"As with seemingly everything else in his life, Mr. Trump got one handed to him instead of earning it," Kerr writes on the page. "As a Purple Heart recipient who earned one the old-fashioned way by returning from Afghanistan one leg lighter, I fully endorse his desire to earn one and would happily oblige his interest in doing so, by being one of the first to chip in to fly him to the conflict zone of his choosing."

Kerr later admitted that sending Donald Trump to a war zone was something of a fantasy. Instead, Kerr will be using the funds raised from the page to help Syrian refugees.

In just four days, Kerr has raised over $41,000 of his $50,000 goal.

Trump received four draft deferments from Vietnam War for going to college, and one time for heel spurs. Critics have lambasted the candidate for attacking decorated veterans like Arizona Sen. John McCain as well as the family of Khizr Khan.

The candidate may never go to a war zone, but people like Kerr are trying at least to prevent him from going to the Oval Office.
