To the Editor:
All veterans, especially those who have experienced combat, and even more so, those wounded or who gave their lives in combat, are deserving of all the public and private support available to meet their hardship needs. Many are yet in dire straits along with their families. Their plight tugs at our heart strings.
Yet, there is a class of gutter livers who take advantage of them and the sacrifices they made. The advantage-taking would include us, as well (although I, too, am a veteran). In that category you will find groups such as the Wounded Warrior Project. Mass mailed fund raising appeals have recently appeared in many of our mailboxes. Other organizations like them abound, including some tying themselves to police and peace officers.
