Letters to the Editor

Thank you for making

a veteran feel welcome

To the Editor:

It was a very delightful event and will be again, every Thursday morning at 7 a.m. A group of veterans meet at the County Cafe in Newberry for breakfast. Just a few "good old boys," enjoying the memories of their time in the military.

They make one feel like he's one of them. There was no politics, religion or anything else controversial discussed. Just a bunch of "brothers" enjoying a good breakfast and a lot of chatter. I guess all veterans are welcome, they sure made me feel welcomed.

I wish to thank Mr. Bob Smiley for turning me on to this event. I also wish to thank him for giving me a ride.

I met Mr. Smiley at the Veteran's Day event at Anderson-Poindexter Memory Chapel. This is an annual event. Many people showed up, in inclement weather, to honor our heroes on their special day.

It never fails to get me all choked up when they perform the "21 gun salute and Taps." Ret. Army Col. Tim Warrick gave a very nice talk. We thank all that participated.

Thanks for listening.

I am writing to ask the people of Greene County to consider making a donation to Generations' Meals-on-Wheels during this holiday season.

Generations has been delivering hot, nourishing meals to homebound individuals in our county and five other local counties for over 31 years -- perhaps to a family member, friend or neighbor of yours.

Please help Generations keep its promise that "no one will go without a meal that needs it."

Thank you

for veterans program

To the Editor:

I would like to thank Jim Meng and his staff of Anderson-Poindexter Funeral Home for honoring us veterans on Nov. 11, 2008.

I know I sure do appreciate it very much.

When I drive past the monument on the lawn of the funeral home I have to slow down and think of all who gave their lives for our country, it also brings tears to my eyes thinking of that.

Also, I want to thank the Linton school for honoring us too.

I am a World War II veteran, I lived 39 months and 21 days overseas helping in the invasion of Normandy. My rank was Technical Corporal.

Thanks again to all.
