Reader appreciates tribute to veterans in Democrat

-A A +A

To the editor:
I want to express my deep appreciation to The Democrat for publishing a special tribute to all those who have served our country, both past and present. It is not only patriotic to provide this service but also it shows sincere honor and respect. At a time when we observe some of our officials showing absolute neglect and even disdain for veterans’ benefits, it is commendable to see someone doing the right thing.
 There is no other segment of our society that is more worthy of our utmost honor and respect than those who give up their private lives and go to foreign lands to serve in the cause of freedom. All those who have worn the uniform of our armed services, past and present, deserve to be honored for their service.  
Thank you, Democrat staff, for your commitment in this regard.
