Letters: It's crass to suggest Veterans Memorial is waste of money

As a former Marine, and an Iraq War Veteran, I am disgusted and appalled by Gloria Brasuel's Letter to the Editor ("Veterans Memorial money should go to sewer project," Nov. 16). What an incredible insult, and unbelievable disservice, your letter is to the veterans of Crescent City.

Our service and sacrifices have no price tag. We have risked our lives, and so many have lost their lives, for this city and this country. Yet you believe that these sacrifices do not warrant a memorial? You want the money to pay for sewer fees? You state that it is "crass" of the city to spend money on a Veterans Memorial. Your letter, however, is what is crass. You owe the veterans of Crescent City an apology.
