Veterans fought for freedom for all

There I would like to respond to Sheri Reiswig’s letter defending veterans from Annie Capestany and others who believe we are as bad as those we are fighting by expressing gratitude to veterans.

It means a lot to us to know there are those who recognize who we are and why we do what we do. In response to Annie’s letter, I would like to say you’re welcome. I say this because I see her words berating us as thanks for protecting her right to say them.

I give her and others room for their ignorance as to who we are because I understand they are so fixated on wanting to see all humans as civilized they won’t see there are those who are evil and want to kill us simply because we don’t believe as they do.

It’s lucky for her and others there are those of us who do understand this and are willing to take up our arms and defend them. So, once again to Annie and others, on behalf of all veterans who have protected you from those who want only to kill you and protected your right to berate us for doing it, you are welcome and you can feel safe to continue to express your negative opinions of us because we will continue defending your right to do it.

Very good letter - the problem being that a lot of the people of this country don't appreciate it.
