LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Personal wealth should not come before national security


With regard to Carol Byng’s letter earlier this month concerning turning military property into a cemetery, I took it to mean that if we had a cemetery here we might be forced to acknowledge the hundreds of folks who lay down their lives for our freedoms.

It has become very clear that some local folks believe that their personal wealth comes before national security. Perhaps a graveyard would raise their conscientiousness?

I didn’t take it as for or against military. I took it as a “don’t forget.”
