Calling all vets

To the Editor:

I am a Vietnam-era veteran and the senior vice commander of Cary-Grove AMVETS Post 245.

Many young and older veterans are needed to join a very special, most respected volunteer-led military organization in the country. Here, you can continue to serve American veterans and the community.

Your membership has a value, whether you are active or not. You are more than just a number. You are an integral part of the American veterans’ long history of fighting for the rights of veterans and actively supporting vital issues that impact the moral fiber of this country.

Military organizations are a voice for all veterans. We need your membership so that when it comes time for Congress to vote on veteran affairs, they realize the hundreds of thousands of veterans their legislation will affect.
