Letter: Thank you for telling veterans’ stories

— I read Don McAllister’s column in The Herald Bulletin. It has come to my attention that Don is a hero. He has recorded stories of many area veterans that otherwise would have been lost forever. To make these recordings has taken a great deal of time, effort and expense. Men and women who have served our country are deserving of this preservation. And, if not for Don, their stories would not have been told. History is very important for all of us.

I understand there are 20,000 veterans in Madison County, and every one of them has a story. My what a job for Don! Thank you, Don, for all your work, effort and expense. And, thank you for the job yet to be done.
