To the Editor:

In response to the “To the Point” column in last week’s paper. I would like to say thank you for the reminder. However, the last paragraph was offensive to me. You seemed as though you were pointing the finger at everyone who fortunately had the day off.

I have every day off due to my service to protect the sovereignty of freedom. How do you suppose that in a society where values and freedoms are quickly eroding that anyone should have the right to admonish another for that person’s remembrance of all veterans, living or deceased? I would say that due to inflated prices, partially related to funding the governments thought on freedom, most people had to work anyway.

I am certain that any and all who have served or have known someone who has served remembers that sacrifice at least once annually, if not daily.
