Letter: What Is a Veteran?

A veteran is someone who will miss his sister’s or brother’s wedding.

A veteran is someone who will miss his son or his daughter’s baseball game. Just keep this in mind, we wake up in the morning and go to work or out to play. One can go to school of their choice; one can find a job of their choice. One can do what one would like to do (almost); one can wear the clothes any way we choose. That is why we call America the greatest country.

A veteran is someone who will go 4,000 miles to help another country, not always in combat but they go to help others learn how to pave roads, build schools, have clean running water. I can go on and on. When veterans leave home, they go to help and make someone else a home.

Try to keep this on your mind.

Those who think that America is an arrogant nation should really reconsider that thought. Our founding fathers used God’s word and teaching to establish our great nation and think it’s time Americans get re-educated about this nation’s history.

“God given right and freedoms.

A nation that forgets its veterans will one day be a forgotten nation.”

For God and Country,
Andrew Booth, Levittown
