To the editor:
Thank you to Laura Lewis for the great and honest column concerning the Memorial Day services in Calabash.
We attend all of the Memorial Day services each year and thoroughly enjoy them. Memorial Day should be for all the fallen service men and women. My father is a deceased Army veteran. Jerry is an Army veteran, and we believe the deceased military should be honored without all the politics. We tried to focus on both services in Calabash at the same time, but it was very difficult, even trying to be parked in a mutual area to hear and see both. The audio at the VFW was excellent, but, as usual, the audio at the town park is terrible.
Maybe next year we will witness both services at different times, with the VFW being at 11 a.m. Also, thanks to the VFW for the new park flag, much needed to be replaced this winter.
Jerry and Mary Ann Baker
