Debt owed to living veterans

Sunday, September 30, 2018

To the Editor:

Just a few days ago I read two obits of vets. They said we owe them a debt.

I am wondering how we can pay that debt now, They are gone. They need NOTHING.

As I recall, a year or so ago this man who is a vet said he and his wife were old and sick.

He could not even get gas money to go to the VA hospital. They lived on food stamps and food giveaways.

Seems to me the living are who we owe the debt to.

I sure hope if I read this wrong, forgive me.
