Thank you for the Veterans Day Notice you included on the front page of this week’s The Independent.
However, I do want to point out that while it thanks “our veterans of all wars,” you are excluding thousands of veterans that served during times of peace defending our citizen’s freedom. This is understandable since your notice is a joint effort with the American Legion who does not extend membership to veterans that did not serve during foreign conflict thus minimizing the contribution of those who served during peace time.
Please remember that members of our nation’s armed forces serve not only in times of war but they also serve to maintain peace.
