Honoring veterans

Posted Tuesday, August 16, 2016, at 3:20 PM

Someone accused the T-G today of not providing any coverage of veterans. To paraphrase a co-worker, I would stack our coverage against any other paper our size in Tennessee.

A fast search of the word veteran in our online archives yielded a number of results going back the past year, including (but not limited to):

Bob Fullerton, a veteran of the Korean War: http://www.t-g.com/story/2328185.html

God & Country followup: http://www.t-g.com/story/2318143.html

Vietnam veteran: http://www.t-g.com/story/2314866.html

Field of Heroes: http://www.t-g.com/story/2309433.html

Wreaths Across America: http://www.t-g.com/story/2308765.html

These are only since late May...not even all of late May.

That is a small sampling. We also run regular meeting notices etc. for groups like VFW Post 5019, DAV and Vietnam Era Veterans. I don't think anyone can criticize our Memorial Day coverage of events like the Field of Heroes, or all the schools' Veterans Day programs (every single school program every year).

I believe some people just want to complain and don't even want to consider the positive. The Times-Gazette honors veterans year-round for their service.

It may attest to how well they read the paper, if they read it at all. Maybe they are just reading the blogs?

My guess would be it' shows how poorly they read the paper. Not sure about the blog as no mention was made of that.

The paper does a excellent job on giving veterans recognition.
