Silent Homecoming

To The Editor:

Re: the ticker-tape parade for veterans that Sen. Chuck Schumer and Mayor de Blasio envision. I am a Korean War veteran who served in combat as a medic. We lost thousands and thousands more were wounded in the defense of that country. There are service members to this day that are still missing in action and we have never received a parade.

I still have flashbacks from that “police action,” as President Truman called it. Let all veterans who return from war be honored to a parade. If it’s good for baseball and football, I’m sure it ‘s good for all our veterans. Thanks for everyone concerned.
