Veteran clarifies he didn’t serve in World War II

To the editor:

This is to request your assistance to correct an error made during the Alsatia Mummers Parade on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012.

I was introduced over the public address system, near the reviewing stand, in front of Bester Elementary School. I was honored to be introduced, however, the error was a mistake or misunderstanding.

During the introduction, it was stated that I served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The mistake was that I did not serve in World War II.

Some might think it a small thing, but many people know me in Washington County and many know that I did not serve in that war. It would be normal for them to think I am blowing my own horn, trying to get recognition for something that I did not deserve.

I did serve in Korea and Vietnam, and was commissioned in Vietnam in 1966.

Couple thanks all who helped after their car accident

To the editor:

On Oct. 18, my husband and I were involved in an auto accident. We hit a porch and, immediately, two gentlemen appeared at the scene and wanted to know whether we were hurt. They were so kind.

The lady in the house called 911 and the police came right away and then the ambulances.

I just want to thank all of these for being so prompt and caring. So, thank all of you wonderful people.

Rosa Lee and Mark Meyers
