Letter: Give veterans a proper resting place

To the Editor:

As a veteran, I believe all veterans deserve a decent resting place, not a garbage dump in South Barrington. Did we not serve our country? For all of us that returned from conflicts and wars to see clear blue skies and fresh air, do we not deserve some respect?

I urge you to consider a columbarium/cemetery suited for all veterans and to treat all veterans with respect. Did we stink up America or did we help to provide clean air and democracy for all? There are pieces of GIs spread across many battle fields who will never receive a proper interment.

Lets not insult those who survived these military deployments and give them proper respect. I believe a more suitable area than the one proposed in South Barrington next to a garbage area can be found.

Thank you.
