To the editor:
As a daughter of a veteran and a wife of a veteran I want to say "thank you." Our veterans are the citizens who keep our freedoms secure. I believe a lot of people forget about the hard work and sacrifice our military men and women make to keep us safe and free.
My husband is in Kirkuk, Iraq, right now working 84 hours a week. The men over there go on missions for weeks at a time and put themselves in great danger so they can feed their families and keep America safe. If you don't agree with the war then that's fine. But please, show a veteran your appreciation. You don't know how much pride it gives them when they hear "thank you."
I can't say this enough to our veterans: THANK YOU! To our troops overseas, I would like to tell them to stay strong!
