LETTERS: Fitting tribute to a fallen soldier

Thanks to all that took the time to honor the family and memory of Maj. David Gray, along Highway 78, last week. It is fitting to note that the extreme sacrifices made by Maj. Gray, and others, remind us of what we so often take for granted.

It is a shame that while our protectors of freedom remain in harm's way that our country squabbles over trivial matters of political candidates. I hope that we, as a united people, will turn out in record numbers in November and cast a vote to keep our country strong. It is our duty, as Americans, to provide the best possible living and medical conditions possible for military personnel and their families.
