Forget the politicians
Over the past weekend (Sept. 28-29), the communities of both Rutland and Bennington were privileged to witness ceremonies honoring the service and sacrifices of our Korean War veterans.
Did anyone notice not one of our elected congressional delegates was in attendance at either ceremony?
You can bet that you will see them all at many of our VFW and American Legion posts when they are running for re-election, and wanting still more from our veterans.
Thank you to all our Korean War veterans who seem to be “forgotten” once again by those very politicians who have more important things to do in Washington, but who will be here sometime in the future seeking your support and your votes. Is it not time we “forget” about them?
