Military can't get enough thanks

  • Follow Letters

After reflecting on Memorial Day, I continue to think about what our men and women of the military do for us to protect our freedom.

We owe them a great deal of gratitude for giving their time and sometimes, unfortunately, their lives so that we can continue to be free and live in the greatest country on Earth.

A great deal of thanks must also go to Donnie Thompson and the folks who produced Thunder Over Augusta event recently to help mark Armed Forces Day. This was a first-class event unparalleled with any that I have seen in Augusta. The folks who were honored that day really appreciated the recognition given.

Freedom isn't free, and this is why we need to thank our military daily for what they do for us.

Preston A. Moss, Augusta

Donnie offered me as a

Donnie offered me as a Vietnam vet and a friend, a WW II (one of the first across the Rhine who was wounded) red carpet treatment including a ride to the event and front row seats. My friend and I agree that those brave men and women now servng, especially those recovering from wounds at Eisenhower and the VA, were the ones who deserved that treatment. Thank you Donnie-it was truly great and you are a great American.
