Christmas in Iraq

Dear Editor:After reading Mr. Rojo's first-hand account as to what happens over there and what our brave men and women fighting for our country have to face every day, I have no words other than "thank you"! Elizabeth Torres Downey

Dear Editor: I enjoyed Alex Rojo's story about his experiences in Iraq that appeared on page 1 of the Dec. 27 Patriot. The story was very well-written. Thank you, Alex. What a waste of human lives, limbs and money by this fiasco. Didn't our leaders learn anything from the Vietnam catastrophe? Foreign countries have their own structures and cultures. They do not need other cultures to tell them how to run their countries. How would we react if a foreign army invaded our soil and told us to do things their way? I am sure that there would be a lot of resistance to the invading army. We are in desperate need of some real leadership in Washington. Frank Myers Downey
