Veteran’s letter fuels love for US

I am writing in response to the beautiful letter of Van Scoyoc (Oct. 29).

My husband, two of my children, three brothers, two-brothers-in-law and countless uncles and cousins have served in the U.S. military.

To see our flag or the national anthem in disrespect is very hurtful.

Van Scoyoc’s account of Iwo Jima, Corregior Island and Manila Bay reminded me of an uncle who was a paratrooper and lost many friends there.

I am of the same generation and love and respect our flag and country.
