Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

Tuesday, September 14, 2021

As a young lieutenent, my father LeRoy McCarty led his men off the D-Day beach and on behind enemy lines. During the Battle of the Bulge, three of dad's men were captured. Fortunately, later, dad and his men liberated a concentration camp where his brother-soldiers were interred. Amidst the Vietnam involvement, my parents tied yellow ribbons in trees to remind us to pray for a family member held in a prison camp. Why not reseed the concept and tie up red ribbons (representing American flesh and blood) all across this great country of ours? The gentle ribbons' flutter will silently but resoundingly cry out, "no man left behind, bring our people home."

Would you, your family and friends continue this honorable cause?
