What Do You Think?

November 11, 2007

Editor's note: Each week, The Herald-Mail invites readers to answer poll questions on its Web site, www.herald-mail.com. Readers also may submit comments about the poll question when voting. Each Sunday, a sampling of edited reader comments will run in The Herald-Mail.

Last week's poll question was: What is the best way to honor veterans this Sunday?

"The troops fighting past and present did not have a choice what wars they fought, or where they were sent. They vowed to follow orders, and they did, most of them valiantly, bravely and with honor. They risked their lives, and some GAVE their lives, so that we could have the right to sit here on our rumps and voice an opinion. I thank them ALL."

"As a veteran, I say salute them all. I lost both relatives and friends in combat and had an uncle who was a prisoner in WWII. I was lucky enough that my time was in the Cold War. Forget who started what and honor those who have served honor. Long live the U.S.A."

"As a current military member, I would say the best way to show your appreciation is to use those freedoms that many have fought and died for. Go vote when it is time, fly the American flag, go to church. Many freedoms that people overseas cannot do in fear of being killed for. There is nothing though that makes me more proud of serving then just having someone thank me for my service."

"The one way we can honor and respect our vets is to make sure they are properly cared for when they return. That means making sure health care is available for those who need it, medications, housing, giving them the opportunity to earn a living and making sure families who have lost a loved one are properly given benefits, not just an American flag."

"As an Iraq War veteran, I will remember my brothers- and sisters-in-arms, as well as those who came before me, including my grandfather, father, father-in-law and all Americans who have served or are serving honorably and did their duty, including those who survived and those who gave their lives."

"Thank you to all those that serve our country. This day saddens me because of what they go through to keep this a free country. Words can't describe the way I feel right now."
