Wacs, Waves Deserve Recognition, Too

Editor:

I too thought the Veterans Day Ceremony at Green Valley Park's Veterans Memorial was great. However, in recognizing the many veterans of each military group, no mention was made of the great many women who voluntarily left their homes to serve in the WACS, WAVES, Marine Corps and Coast Guard and the nurses who served, not only at home, but in combat zones as well.

What about these veterans? Why was no mention made of them? It was an inexcusable oversight. It should not have occurred and the "committee" owes these veterans an apology.
