I am disappointed that the Mineola school district didn't approve the school tax break for veterans.

Many school districts gave their veterans this tax break. The school board always wants us to vote yes on the school budget, but when it's time to help our veterans -- many of whom are old and on a fixed income -- they say no.

I hope veterans and their friends and family will take notice.
