STRAUB: Vets Urged To Hold More Activities
Letter from Susan M. Straub

Vets Urged To Hold More Activities

Why doesn’t the Cooperstown American Legion/Vets Club do more events?

We would love to participate. It seems, sadly, that those men and women are over the age of 70 and cannot do as much as veterans who may have served in Afghanistan.
