This from Julian Oliver, Past Commander of the American Legion Post 60 in Henderson:
I see the upcoming election within the city is getting plenty of responses not only from Home in Henderson but also the The Daily Dispatch. This is Democracy at work. I am pleased.
This says that you should have a good turnout of voters on October 9. As a veteran and for all veterans, this is one of the things in serving our country that we protected.
I think of those names on the three monuments at Veterans Triangle in front of the First Methodist Church, and one name of PFC Brown that died in Iraq, that paid the ultimate sacrifice for this right.
Those citizens of Henderson that are eligible to vote and choose not to do so, no matter what the outcome, I feel that you have no right to gripe and complain about the way things are going or the people elected. But, as veterans we protected that right also.
