Letters to the Editor

Veterans Day should be honored

As a proud Vietnam era veteran who was preparing for Veterans Day, I find it tragic that so many of my fellow Americans view Nov. 11 as just another day off work. I thank the Lord for my opportunity to serve and the friends I made along the way, during my 28 years of being in the Navy.

It’s time for all Americans to remember the true meaning of Veterans Day. I hope everyone in our area will remember what Veterans Day is all about. Call one of our local VFW Posts to take part in our ceremonies.

And as we near the holidays, please keep our deployed troops and their families in your prayers. Send a care package or donate to a program that supports our troops and veterans. Always remember those who have fought for your freedom.
