The Ultimate Sacrifice for Freedom

To The Editor:

Regarding Howard Barr's letter of Feb. 28, mentioning my name ('Troops in Iraq for the Wrong Reasons'), which was a reaction to a previous letter I wrote that was published on Feb. 24, ('Please Vet Stories'):
It is ultimately elitist and demeaning to claim to support our troops and at the same time proclaim that the same troops are not fighting for our freedom.

To follow that logic, one most believe either that our men and women in uniform are violent opportunists or ignorant dupes. In reality, they are neither. They have chosen to be heroes - our best and brightest.

All I need to know about this war is that our brave soldiers are taking the fight daily to those associated with an enemy that attacked and killed thousands of Americans on our soil - and that some of those great Americans have chosen to make the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom.
