Responds to letter

To the editor:

This is in response to Raymond Witzke’s letter April 4 saying that the VFW had done nothing on Vietnam Veterans Day.

We have many Vietnam veterans in the VFW and on any day honoring their service, they are welcome to put on a program free of charge at the VFW post.

At present we have seven Vietnam veterans serving on our honor guard.

Several times every month we honor veterans at their military funerals in the Fort Dodge area.

The VFW also participates in scholarships and community service events.

I guess all I can say is, Mr. Witzke if you served in Vietnam you are welcome to join the VFW as all Vietnam veterans are also welcome. Perhaps next year you can be the chairman organizing Vietnam Veterans Day.
