Thanks for re­spect­ing vets

West Hawaii Today - - Opinion -

I’d like to send a huge ma­halo to Lex Brodie’s for their free veter­ans car wash, which they had this past Fri­day and Satur­day.

This is the kind of aloha Kona has been known for over the years, and it’s grat­i­fy­ing to know that it’s still alive, how­ever, un­for­tu­nately, dwin­dling.

As a Viet­nam vet, my deep­est love to all of my fel­low broth­ers and sis­ters who un­selfishly stood tall for this great, one na­tion un­der God.

I defy those over­paid NFL ath­letes who des­e­crate our God, our coun­try, and our flag, and those of us who stood. When the greater ma­jor­ity of them haven’t done any more than to greed­ily want more!

I defy them to take off all of their pro­tec­tive gear, pick up a ri­fle, and join us on the real bat­tle­field. Roy Crytser Holu­aloa
