To the editor:
I am writing about the proliferation of flags, T-shirts and other signs of patriotism so prominently, and rightly, displayed in support of our country and its men and women in our armed forces. Might I make a suggestion? Figure out what you paid for your flag or decal or T-shirt and make an equivalent donation to paralyzed or disabled veterans. Those men and women are still paying a steep price for the liberties we have. A modest contribution from the thousands of purchasers of "United We Stand" materials would show them that they are not forgotten.
