Mayors disappoint writer

Editor:

What a wonderful tribute I witnessed to our fallen soldiers at the VFW Post 1388 on Saturday. State Representative Dan Dodd gave an eloquent tribute to all fallen soldiers. Reynoldsburg Mayor Bob McPherson and Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen were there to show their respect. But, what appalls me is that the mayors of Buckeye Lake, Hebron, and Millersport were invited to attend, but guess what?? NO responses and NO Shows. I am appalled that they couldn't take one hour to be there to show some respect to the men and women who fought and DIED for the freedom that they enjoy today.

The men and women of Post 1388 are very involved in these communities and Licking County and I feel even they have been dishonored by their lack of respect. Enough said!!!
