Letters to the Editor

Letter: Veteran suicides

I wear something that tells people I am Vietnam veteran. Not because I want recognition. It’s because it gives me the opportunity to ask people who thank me for my service to do me a favor, then I hand them a card that reads ...

“They were told if they served, they’d be taken care of. Why then are so many veterans killing themselves? Please call and ask your representatives what they are doing to eliminate these suicides.”
