LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Memorial Day thank you

This Memorial Day, I'd like to say just a few words about those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for us to enjoy the freedoms we have. Just a few words. Words like, the Ardienne, the Marne, the trenches, Corregidor, Bataan, Midway, Guadalcanal, Bougainville, Ploesti, Sicily, Salerno, Anzio, Tarawa, Monte Casino, Iwo Jima, Friedrickshaven, Normandy, Bastonge, Leyte Gulf, Okinawa, Pusan, Inchon, Chosen Reservoir, the Tet, Khe Sahn, Kuwait and all the nameless skirmishes and fire fights in the snow, in the desert and in malaria infested jungles all over the world. Just a few words and, perhaps, two more. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Larry Damon
