I would like to address the letter written a couple of weeks in the Open Forum by Craig Anderson. I wish before you write letters to the editor you would get all the facts. I have checked with the VFW about this incident as I was not there to hear what was said, I have the facts.

Yes this vet was there and he was in a conversation with someone that you overheard. The story is this veteran was a truck driver before and after his time in the service, He supported his family by driving a truck and was also drawing a disability check from the VA for an injury he received while defending our great country and the good old red white and blue. So when this company was transferred to the son he was still working beyond his retirement age. So at that time he decided to retire with his Social Security and his VA check. Now because of his injury he has one tough time walking and he spends lots of time at home on his better days he goes to the clubs for conversation and companionship like many people do. Would you deny these veterans or anyone else this pleasure?

So please don't point fingers and pass judgment on things you don't have all the facts.

Enough said. So instead of judging let's pull together and help each other have compassion for others. Be sure to have the facts straight. Please be willing to help a veteran or someone in the community that may need help, especially at this great time of the year, step up.

By the way we are veterans helping veterans. We are happy you came in to utilize our friendly VFW Club as a member or a guest.
