Veterans Day is a time to salute all veterans past and present. It is one of those times to give back to the veteran [“Vets helping veterans,” News, Nov. 9].

My father was a World War II combat veteran and my husband is a veteran from the Vietnam era. All veterans are heroes in their answer to the call of duty. The fictional surreal hero becomes real through the courage of our military and their heroic feats, especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.

Perhaps one day wars will cease and we will enjoy peace. Freedom is not free. Give thanks to veterans this Veterans Day. God bless America.

Susan Davniero, Lindenhurst
