Letter: Sewickley veteran thanks those who helped get banners installed

An example of the banners that will hang in Sewickley.

Those who helped with banners thanked

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the officers and members of the Sewickley VFW, veterans, families of veterans, and community supporters, we would like to thank Jim Edson and the Bartlett Tree Services for offering a bucket truck to see that the veterans banners were installed.

Special thanks to council member John Dunn and his wife who got the ball rolling on this program by beginning to install the banners themselves.

Also thanks to Sewickley Borough for providing the labor for this task.

The installation of these banners serves as a lasting memory of these local patriots who left their homes and families to answer their country’s call to service.

For those families who purchased the banners, this is a lasting tribute to their loved ones.

We thank them also for speaking out forcefully about seeing that the banners get installed.

Hopefully we continue to salute these veterans and remember them by posting the banners in future years.

Gary Farole

USMC, Vietnam veteran

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
