To the editor:
To the RTR Elementary staff and especially the fifth grade class: On Veterans Day it was my honor to speak to the entire school in Ruthon in regard to the importance of veterans and my experiences while in the service to my country.
I was very touched by your response and hope the presence of a veteran helped to make a difference in your lives. Being a veteran means you are willing to serve, whether it is a time of war or peace.
Being able to serve is an honor that can never be taken away. God Bless all of you.
U.S. Army, 1966-1969
