This episode made for a very sad evening. But I must thank Kayla and Alex for doing the right thing and thereby, once again, renewing my faith in humanity.
TREVA M. JANENDO
TO THE EDITOR: Homeward Bound Adirondacks is an organization that is committed to creating community-based solutions to the issues facing service members, veterans and their families throughout the North Country.
I would like to appeal to our community across the North Country to honor, recognize and thank veterans during the month of November for their service.
Do you belong to a service organization or religious group? Consider honoring veterans at a meeting or service in November.
Do you see someone wearing a hat that tells you they served? Take a moment and say thank you.
Do you own a business? Find out whether any of your employees are vets and help them verify they are receiving all the benefits they are entitled.
Are you a mental-health clinician? Consider providing service through Military One Source or Give an Hour.
Military personal will often say, “I was just doing my job; I did nothing spectacular.” It may have been “just a job,” but keep in mind that it is a job that the majority of our nation seems unwilling to do themselves.
By doing the job they do, our service men and women allow the people of our nation to go about their daily lives without a second thought. So I urge you to give it a second thought.
What can you do this year to make a difference?

TO THE EDITOR: I would like the opportunity to thank the voters of the Town of Plattsburgh for supporting me in the election.
I did my very best to go to as many houses as possible to meet you again.
