Letter to the editor

Our veterans organizations have been well recognized and treated well by our public. We are honored being invited to provide military honors for our local veterans’ funerals and memorials as well as invitations to post our National Colors for community events such as Community College graduation, Alaska Pioneers convention and Democratic and Republican political conventions. We are also honored to be invited to lead our 4th of July parade, Funny River Progress Days parade and Peninsula State Fair parade. We as veterans who have served our country in time of war defending our freedoms or that of our allies feel a great deal of pride when asked to lead its honorable celebration events.

I want to thank our political parties in acknowledgement of our veterans status — in offering assistance when we need an extra voice to get needed medical and domestic help. Our U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski has a field office in the Kenai Benco Building and U.S. Senator Mark Begich has a field office in the same building — and invitations are out to veterans who are in need of assistance.

Thanks again to our community for great hospitality.

Herb Stettler, Chaplain
