In regards to Thomas Mann’s letter of today, Sunday, Jan. 15, “Obama: bought and paid for,” he says he was a veteran and that’s important. I, too, am a veteran of the Second World War for 42 months and wonder if that gives me special privileges. I choose to think not! We could have declared ourselves to be conscientious objectors, but not many did that! There is no doubt that war is not a good thing to be engaged in, but we were and that’s something many died fighting for. We hope all wars will soon be declared illegal, something I’m sure President Obama will be for, for all the right reasons! Ginny and Bob Mock, Auburn
