Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:
Veterans Day is an obvious reminder of what we owe those who have served, but our gratitude needs to be ongoing for the rest of our days. Those who are presently serving need to be provided the very best equipment we can give them, just as we need to provide for veterans with the very best services we have.
Arizona plays a major role in national security with Luke Air Force Base and the Yuma Air Station now home to the most technologically advanced aircraft ever built — the F-35 fighter jet. These are part of the plan into the future to continue our air superiority.
Be sure to thank any veteran you see and be sure to keep in mind that those serving now can best be thanked by providing for their security as they provide ours.
