Misspent money better spent on veterans

Letter to the Editor

Rather than waste my efforts commenting on the annoying and misleading political races, I have opted for a more valuable comment about our U.S. veterans, past and present.

I want to express my appreciation to our veterans for the sacrifices they and their families have made on my behalf. This debt can never be repaid, but it will always be appreciated by me and my family.

It makes me sad to think of the good things we could do for our veterans with the money our government misspends.

Obviously, politicians have different priorities than I do.
