The men and women who have served this country in its military have been top of mind in recent days — nationally, across Maryland and here in Frederick.

And that is a very good thing. They deserve our attention.

I am a veteran. I was with the First Infantry Division in Vietnam for a year, and I retired to Frederick after I worked for the FDA in Bethesda. My home at Mill Island is just great. I am happy to see so many programs for veterans here. While some may say they must leave to avoid higher taxes, I am very happy here and want to stay as long a I can. The people I meet are great.


Thank you sir. My father was a Normandy vet. He passed away at the age of 53 from lung disease that began when he was in Antwerp (due to lack of proper cold weather gear). I love to see how Veterans are still revered, as you all should be.
