Veterans needed

To the Editor:

I am a Korean War veteran and a member of the American Legion Post 491, McHenry.

Many veterans are needed in all veterans’ organizations in McHenry County. All veterans should consider joining one of these groups, because we need you to be counted when our veterans leaders go to Washington, D.C., to lobby Congress for benefits for veterans.

It goes a long way if they can tell members of Congress that represent 4 million to 5 million veterans who could vote lawmakers out of office if they want to play games with what is due to veterans.

So all men and women veterans, do yourself a big favor and join your fellow comrades at a veterans organization near your home to build the numbers.
