Letter to the Editor

County Park North is best location

Thursday, July 19, 2007

To the editor:It is very distressing to hear Rodger Brown express his personal vendetta about the monuments he wishes to place in a remote, crowded, dark area.

Cape County Park North is the proper place as we have memorials there. Also the traffic in the park is much greater and gives the memorials more exposure, which is well-deserved.

The attitude of these people promoting the downtown park area is unacceptable to the majority of veterans. The attitude and the gesture of "my way or the highway" by the these promoters does not show respect and common sense.
