Dear Editor, It's hard to believe that it has been only 20 years since Nov. 9, 1989, when Berliners battered holes in the wall that had divided their city for decades. The collapse of communism in Eastern Europe represented the culmination of the Cold War. For two generations, American servicemen and servicewomen secured a border stretching from Norway to the Mediterranean Sea. Let's not forget these "Cold Warriors" that helped bring about the collapse of the Soviet Bloc this Veterans Day, as well as those who served in other theaters.

Thanks those who help community Dear Editor, Today I express my gratitude to the people of this community who give daily to help make Winchester a better place to live. This little community has a strong heart and desire to give to the people who live here. No one wants to see anyone lose their house to foreclosure, lose a job or strive to make ends meet, not even the politicians and city government of this community. We have so many wonderful organizations in place that help people in Clark County.

It's been a long time since the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th Month in 1918., also known as the end of World War I and the signing of the Armistice. Veterans Day, originally called Armistice Day, was created to honor veterans of World War I, and in 1954, became a holiday to recognize all American veterans. For some people, it means nothing more than having a day off. But for many others, it recalls the great sacrifices that were made for the freedom of our country.

Dear Editor. Each Nov. 11, our nation pays homage to those who have dedicated their lives to the service of their country. Veterans Day is one of our nation's most recognized holidays and, because of its meaning, perhaps the most important. On Oct. 26, the 110th Congress passed Senate Resolution: 357. The resolution designates the week between Nov. 11 and Nov. 17 "National Veterans Awareness Week. " The resolution calls for greater community recognition of veterans, and more educationally enlightening activities for students in primary and secondary education.
