Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, As a Vietnam veteran and a 45-year participant in the antiwar movement, I would like to propose a goal which I hope we can all share: May we have future generations that have no veterans, because there were no wars to create them. The Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan veterans I have counseled overwhelmingly support this philosophy; can we support them? Their wars didn’t end when...

Here at La Verne we celebrated our decorated heroes by having classes. Students who... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, It was a beautiful sight to see the crowd that attended the Veteran’s Day ceremony on Friday, Nov. 9. My own war was over 40 years ago, but the young men and women who served our country in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve our support. I’ve been appalled at the level of commitment people have toward our vets; there are lots of people with bumper stickers saying they “Support the Troops,”...
