Many agree to 'all inclusive' memorial
I want to say thank you for featuring my letter to the editor, as your guest editorial, "Joint war memorial should be all inclusive" (Auburn Reporter, Aug. 23).
I've been approached and gotten several feedbacks on it, from fellow veterans, friends and neighbors, and fellow parishioners of the Holy Family Catholic Church of Auburn. They all have agreed that this joint war memorial should be an "all inclusive" memorial with other soldiers who fought bravely with America's warriors, in all wars. And if this memorial is going to be an exclusive war memorial between the soldiers of South Vietnam and America's Vietnam veterans, then it should be built on a privately-bought land.
And that, I believe, seems to be the consensus of the silent majority of the citizens of Auburn.
