Letter: Veterans his priority
I write in reference to Margaret Martin’s letter in Thursday Nov. 8: The tone was abrasive and disrespectful to a Vietnam veteran who was decorated for bravery in combat, Mayor William F. Martin. From day one of his administration, Mayor Martin has made veterans and veterans affairs among his very highest priorities. I truly hope you read Pat Hynes’ tribute to veterans published on the same page, Margaret Martin. Look around the world, at our own Congress in D.C.; inflexibility is very divisive. Your time would have been better spent writing a letter of thanks to the mayor for all he has done for Franklin County veterans. As a Vietnam veteran with two Purple Hearts, I salute Mayor Martin for all he has done for veterans; he has done much.
