LTE: US Veteran thanks Northeast News for our service

I am a new subscriber and wanted to stop to tell u that I am impressed. I felt NE was on the decline but you have encouraged me.

I was raised on South Oakley and am 90 yrs old. I served in WWII as a radio officer aboard a merchantt ship as u had to be 17 to serve in the military and I was 15.

I also served in the Korean conflict in General Custer’s 7th Cavalry Regiment of the First Cavalry Division.

Thanx for your efforts, they are appreciated.

-Don Airington
