Job well done

I’m a Korean War veteran and a life member of the VFW and American Legion posts in Lower Burrell. The local Veterans Day activities — and the beautiful weather — showed everyone who attended what this country is all about (“Ceremonies honor veterans,” Nov. 12).

From the morning ceremonies and parade to the afternoon ceremonies at the VFW, it was a beautiful sight to see the huge crowds in attendance. The participation of the color guard, the speakers and the Burrell High School band and cheerleaders gave the veterans their day. The luncheon presented afterward by the VFW Auxiliary was appreciated by the veterans.

Many thanks to the veterans and the other people who organized the Veterans Day activities, which no doubt took a lot of planning and hard work. I say: “A job well done.”

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
