Issue Date: November 9, 2021

Dear Editor:

The members of Menominee American Legion Auxiliary (ALA) Unit 146 would like to extend a sincere appreciation to our veterans on Thursday, November 11, Veterans Day, or Armistice Day (WWI) as it was once known, and first celebrated in 1919.  It is a time to pay tribute to all American veterans - living or deceased for protecting this great country - The United States of America. The American Legion Auxiliary recognizes veterans for having a sense of patriotism, and courage when they answered the call to serve, and protect their country's freedom, and security during war, or peacetime.

It is important to the American Legion organization, and to our country to remember those who have sacrificed so that Americans can enjoy a  better way of life.  Since many of our veterans and active duty military have witnessed, and experienced the devastation of war, it does leave a serious impact mentally, and physically on them.  Many veterans will experience addiction, despair, homelessness, loneliness, home/work related issues, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), which includes flash-back, and severe anxiety.  There are benefits and resources available to veterans.  Veterans are encouraged to contact a local American Legion Post, or a State Representative for referrals.

American Legion Auxiliary members have dedicated themselves for over a century to their organization's mission:  In the spirit of "Service, Not Self", the mission of the American Legion Auxiliary is to support the American Legion, and to honor the sacrifice of those by enhancing the lives of our veterans, educate our citizens, mentor youth, and promote patriotism, good citizenship, peace and security. The ALA represents the views of its members based on its four pillars:  Veteran Affairs & Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, Children and Youth.

In addition, the American Legion is a voice for two million American veterans and service members, and lets our government officials know how we feel when it comes to changes relating to our veterans.    The American Legion does not support candidates, but rather issues.

Since there will be various veteran commemorative ceremonies taking place in our area on Veterans Day, the public is encouraged to attend, and extend a "thank you" to a veteran for their service and sacrifice.  Never forget the men and women who served in the United States Armed Forces to protect our freedom.

Connie Kewley

Public Relations Chairman

Menominee ALA Unit 146



Editor:

Veterans Day is a day to honor all the men and women, living and passed, who took up arms in defense of America.  Veterans Day, or Armistice Day as it was once known, was first celebrated in 1919, a day set aside to remember the sacrifices of our soldiers fighting what was thought to be "the war to end all wars."

More than 100 years, and many conflicts later, we continue the solemn tradition of paying tribute to American Veterans who wore the uniforms of our Armed Forces. Their commitment to this nation ?? no matter where or when they served ?? was guided by one enduring American principle, freedom. 

That duty is especially important to those of us privileged to serve Veterans at VA.  So much so, that on the wall at the entrance of the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center are the words, Focused on Excellence ?? Putting Veterans First. 

The Veterans we serve live in one of the most rural areas of our country and are some of the best people our nation has produced. It is our duty to remember the sacrifices they've made and to make certain that our commitments to them and to their families are honored.

This past year our medical center opened a new community clinic in Gladstone to serve Delta County veterans closer to home; we were awarded the VA Best Patient Experience Award for the third year in a row, and the medical center broke ground on our primary care expansion project. All of this while keeping our veterans and employees safe by offering walk-in COVID-19 and flu vaccinations.

Caring for Veterans is the very heart of President Lincoln's charge to Americans in his Second Inaugural Address near the end of our bloody Civil War. In 1865, President Lincoln directed us "to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan." I'm honored to be a part of it. 

On behalf of the men and women of the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center and our community-based outpatient clinics, I thank our veterans for their service and sacrifice!

Sincerely,

James W. Rice

Oscar G. Johnson Medical Center Director



Editor:

Thank You to our Clerks

Running our Wisconsin elections in a timely, accurate, and honest manner requires many hundreds of local, county, and state government clerks, employees, volunteers- and even prosecutors, sheriffs, and judges- all dedicated to Truth.  Given our rural political landscape, most of these elected officers, employees and volunteers are Republican.

 As we head into 2022, numerous audits and judicial decisions by these public servants have declared the 2020 elections overwhelmingly accurate.  Those living in reality know that it is extraordinarily difficult to successfully commit voter fraud due to existing Wisconsin voter laws, numerous procedural checks and balances- and the integrity of our town, city, and county clerks.  Republicans even threw out the GAB and created the WEC during their last gerrymandered trifecta to ensure their preferred electoral results!

 Those who are gullible to conspiracies should be reminded of a human tendency best articulated by Ben Franklin: "Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead."

 While there is no way I could ever be a Republican in today's disturbing climate, I very much appreciate the few who still cling to what Republicans used to be- highly moral, conservative, humble individuals always earnestly seeking to do the right thing.

 With that in mind, a big "thank you" to every Republican clerk, judge, prosecutor, sheriff, employee, and volunteer who has been protecting valid election results- and what little is left of our ailing democracy- often despite death threats from their own party!

Mark Smith,

Oconto Falls



Letter to Editor:

Nov. 3rd was a great day for me as my faith in democracy and capitalism was renewed. America is waking up! Getting up and turning on news of Virginia and New Jersey, two democratic strong holds, realizing that socialism/communism is not the answer. New Jersey is in the process of recounts but I pray for the republican candidates' success. It was great to see that you don't need a pile of money to win a campaign! So much for the yapping of who has raised the most money! That's all they have to offer. And we're starting to see this in our state with the laundry list of candidates on the democrat party running against Senator Johnson who has done a fine job for us through his honest endeavors and isn't a product of the fake ads that are shown on TV. These people are just a rubber stamp for the chaos we see today in Washington.

With a president going to a climate conference, which involved 4 UW jets, 85 gas guzzling cars which paraded Biden 92 miles to the summit and then he falls asleep during it! What a load of hot aid! And then the top polluters didn't attend. With our border open and the"mother" of all caravans is on the way and Biden wanting to pay illegal immigrants who were separated when illegally crossing the border, $450,000 each WHO BROKE THE LAW COMING HERE! Biden won't allow Texas to finish the wall on their border with materials already paid for and rusting, but we taxpayers have to pay for a wall around his lakeside home! This administration believes in so much lawlessness and refuses to correct it! With inflation out of control, gas prices in some areas at $8 a gallon and Biden hasn't figured out to open up our pipelines and resume drilling on federal land but instead he asks foreign countries for oil! Go figure! Vice President Kamala Harris, the one who cackles/laughs at everything makes herself unavailable along with no evidence of job performance. What does she do? And we pay for all of these shenanigans! With our military heroes, medical workers, police, firemen, first responders, who risked their lives at the start of the pandemic are being fired for not receiving covid shot. As my father-in-law said: "You don't have to fire a shot, just brain wash our youth in the schools and you will control the USA" and that was 35 years ago. How right he was. Nov. 2nd America woke up and saw the danger. Mama Bear is on the move! My faith in America is renewed.

To those in the 30 percent bracket who think that Biden and who's pulling the strings, walk on water, just ask yourself - what has Biden done? What has improved in the last 9 months and if this decay keeps on, how much more will he mess up?

Some people think the democrat party is the party of old but it's not and only in name only. Why don't they be honest and admit that they actually are Socialists and there's another party for that - I believe it's combined with the communists.

How can Congress pass a bill that they haven't totally written yet? It totals 2200-2300 pages compared to the Bible with 1323 pages and I'm sure most democrats haven't read either one. And, who is going to pay for all of this stuff? YOU AND I!

Let's all get on the bandwagon and take America back! God has given us the greatest nation on the face of the earth along with a constitution that provides for our rights and freedoms. Let's not screw it up!

Roger Pillath
