To the Editor:

I have known Don Kopsell since we were in fifth grade.

He always has been someone I could rely on, and he always kept his word. After high school graduation, Don and I enlisted in the Army, and we were sent to Vietnam.

While in Vietnam, he was seriously injured. His recovery in the hospital lasted over 11 months. He received a Purple Heart, Bronze Star and Army Commendation with V for his injuries.

I ask my fellow veterans to show support for the election of Don Kopsell to McHenry County Board District 3 on Tuesday. He will serve his constituents well, as he did his country.
