    Many Thanks to the Vietnam vets and all who have served.

    Many of you may not be aware that an important link to home that has served our overseas servicemen and women is in danger of being lost. Stars and Stripes is a military newspaper that has been partially funded by the Department of Defense. Its history goes back as far as the Civil War.

    The current funding is $15 million dollars per year, which seems small in the days of Trillion dollar budget deficits. Yet, DOD has submitted a budget to cut off funding. The funding goes to print the paper overseas and distribute it to our troops. The news coverage is unique in that it is geared towards news that is of particular interest to those serving in the military. Stripes generates the rest of their funding via subscriptions and ads. Active Duty soldiers do not pay anything for access to the paper. Most of the subscribers are Vets, including many Vietnam Vets. If you would like to check it out, go to www.stripes.com.

    In the past John McCain and other Vets in Congress were strong advocates for the paper when it faced cuts. If you see the need to our Troops in the field to stay connected and have access to quality journalism, please write your Congressman and Senators and ask them to make sure this funding continues.
