Letter: What we have here

To the Editor:

It’s time again to remember the people that served our country in foreign wars. 

Those people, men and women, that gave their being and lives to show what it means to come from a nation that believes in peace; freedom from poverty, abuse, death from killers, bombs, land mines, etc., that some live with every day of their lives.

Many of our members have had to live with those people and tried to help them – they won’t or can’t rid their country of people that only want power over their country and all who oppose them.

Your city or cities all over the U.S. of A. should thank those members or should be a member of their local VFW posts that still are good members and do good deeds (or work) each day for the many projects that support the American way of life – and their community in many ways –  with effort and money, as they can afford.

Many of the veterans have lost their lives on this earth but gone to a better place. We hope and are wishing we don’t have more veterans of foreign wars … yet we go on allowing the world we live in to maintain the wars and abuse with only hope that we will still have people that will give their lives to free people in other lands to have what we have here in the United States of America.
