Ackerman’s column needed to be said

I just want to say that Jeff Ackerman’s article in The Union, Feb. 4, was one of the best I have ever seen. “What should we risk …” was so well-written. It is my belief, as well.

I have a son in the Army and a great-nephew in the Marines, and I am scared that they will be sent to fight, the same as my mom was afraid when my dad went to Europe during World War II and my brother to Vietnam in 1969.

I am not the author that Jeff is, and he said it all. Thank you, Jeff, for saying what many of us wish we could.
