Missing stars at graves dishonor those who gave their lives

To the Editor:

As I am out putting flags on our veterans’ graves, I find that the stars are missing at many area cemeteries. This letter is to let you know that the American Legion and Auxiliary do know, but it will take some time to replace the stars, if we can.

I’m sorry that some people have no respect for the veterans and dishonor the ones that have given them their freedom as they take one of the last gifts veterans get from the state.

Roberta Elmstrand

NB Legion Auxiliary  president


Editor’s note: President Elmstrand said it costs $34 each to replace the stars. There are some 

300 graves to cover.
