6/12/2013 9:42:00 AM Letter: Honor veterans'
sacrifice by voting
As I write this on Memorial Day 2013, I would give anything to have my late husband, Harold Brown, still here with us - his family. He passed away four years ago at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Prescott. He was only 16 when he enlisted in the Navy at the beginning of World War II and was trained as a medic and served at Pearl Harbor, Guam and Okinawa. He saw so much of the results of war. There were so many fellows he knew who never made it home.
Thinking of this, I am remembering this from England's Prime Minister, Winston Churchill: "The history of man is the history of war." How sad.
When voting time comes around again, let each of us show our appreciation for the service of our enlisted men and women by voting, and let's remember that our great country was founded on principals found in the Bible.
One last thought: A man of courage can admit when he is wrong and, no matter who our president is at any given time, hopefully he can admit when he is wrong. No president is or ever will be perfect - none of us are.
