Writer stands corrected on remark on Americans 'answering the call'

Apr 17, 2014 - Mary Sue Shoup, Riverton


I stand corrected for my statement concerning whether our men would answer the call if it came in.

Thank God we do have the personnel that answer the call to duty. It's just a shame our government has cut us back so much when it comes to our military defenses.

I've never agreed with all the military base closures or the cutbacks to the military. If it weren't for the military, we wouldn't have the freedoms we now enjoy.

But I regress and take the correction with my head still held high.

God bless our vets, God bless the USA, and God help us stay out of any unnecessary battles.
