In answer to Allan P. Small's letter regarding military salutes: I have lived through the last five great wars, worn our country's uniform for 26 years, and am a past commander of Lowell Post 87, the American Legion, and served on active duty in the Korean conflict and the Vietnam conflict. I agree, technically, one should be in uniform to salute our servicemen. But with that, any time, anybody, "rendering honors" to my comrade brothers and sisters, do so with my personal thanks, as should you also thank them.
W.C. "BILL" RAWNSLEY
And having spent a few years working just a few desks and filing cabinets away from Bill Rawnsley, I attest that he is the real deal.

PS: I believe Mimi at Left in Lowell also addressed this issue.
