I just want to thank your writers for their commentary on the day that we set aside to remember those who died defending our country (TNT, 5-28). The editorial writer who wrote “To Americans who fell, an obligation of memory” and reader columnist Karen Frost with “A forgotten soldier’s grave.”

Since our history is not really taught anymore in our schools, too many people have no idea of the price that was paid to give us our freedoms we enjoy in this country. It is a price not only paid by our military men and women who served, but also by their families that were left behind. Thank you to all.
