Dear Editor: As a veteran, I thank you for the great honor you bestowed upon us veterans on Veterans Day. Your newspaper coverage of veterans was outstanding. Veterans and their families and kin make up a large segment of the reading public in Newton County and I believe who they enjoy reading about the stories of the veterans that live here among them. I give special thanks to you for hiring Pete Mecca and providing him a forum to tell the veteran's story. Pete, a veteran himself, knows the true reality of what it is to be a veteran and he is the best representative of us veterans that we could ever hope for. Please continue your excellent work in bringing the stories of veterans to the general public and giving them the honor and recognition that they so richly deserve.
