Letter to the editor: Patriotism

Display of patriotism appreciated

In a recent trip to Ohio from Kentucky, I passed through your city. I was so moved by the patriotism shown in the display of American flags, the lovely flowers, and the cleanliness of the main routes through your town.

In the early 1950s, I traveled with the Columbus Regional Blood Bank as a registered nurse. Your community, even then, showed great patriotism. It was during the early years of the Korean War, and I was a young wife of an Army officer serving in Korea. The London church ladies were so supportive of me each time the bloodmobile visited your city.

As a widow of an Army officer and active member of the Daughters of the American Revolution in Berea, Ky., I feel very deeply about patriotism and love of country.

Please share my “kudos” (a Hawaiian word for “thanks”) with your citizens and city officials.

My husband and I lived in Hawaii for many years after his retirement from the military. It is a very patriotic state and its residents all honor the military services. Your community, too, could be at the top of my list.
