Letter to the Editor

Fair Veterans Day

Sunday, September 16, 2018

An open letter to every person in Spencer, Iowa.

Today is Sept. 10, 2018. Iíve decided on my day off work to attend Veterans Day at the Clay County Fair. Iíve never seen the parade, nor have I heard any of the speeches. But my main goal for this is to give a firm handshake to every veteran who has served in combat. I canít even fathom what these soldiers go thru during a war. The horror of this, what they see, what situation theyíre under ... well, is mind-bending to me.

In closing I just want to say thank you to all military personnel, past, present and future. I am so very proud of each and every one of you in uniform. To all you liberals out there, I have just one thing to say to you ó America, love it ... or leave it! Please.

Robert C.T. Yankey, Spencer
