To the Editor:

We are privileged to live in Westerville and have the support of the Westerville Sunrise Rotary and many other organizations, businesses and volunteers to once again honor our veterans, living and deceased, who fought to preserve our freedoms.

This year they honored the Korean War Veterans. The efforts put into that display of thousands of flags, a life-sized replica of some of the soldiers, depicted in the Korean Monument in Washington, D.C. built by local volunteers, a wall of pictures of some local veterans, a reflecting pool in honor of those killed in the war and a tent showing the many battle areas throughout Korea.

They even had golf carts to transport those of our veterans, who needed them.

My husband proudly served in Korea and was overwhelmed by the pride shown by Westerville and its people to honor our Korean veterans this year.

Many of the Volunteers at this event are also involved with "Honor Flight," an organization, which takes veterans, at no expense to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials, built in their honor.

Many thanks to everyone involved.
