Dear Editor, Upon further investigation, I would like to make a correction on a letter I wrote to the editor on June 30. There was a miscommunication between the funeral home, me and the company in charge of our father’s military rites. We would like to apologize to the American Legion Hall Post 18 and to stress the funeral homes, families and the company in charge of performing the deserved rights of all veterans should communicate better. We understood in order for our father to receive his, we would have to make a donation.
