Letter: Come hear the cheers

Seventy years ago, after a long struggle, World War II ended. The Allies, including 16 million young Americans, saved the world from tyranny and domination. Our eternal gratitude goes to them. We also salute all of the men and women who have served and those who, by choice, continue to serve today.

All U.S. veterans, active duty members and reservists, locals and visitors, are invited to join the Thanks to Our Veterans entry in Aspen’s Fourth of July parade. Meet on Main Street by Paepcke Park at 10 a.m. Rides are available. For more information, please call me, Hugh Roberts, at 970-927-4194 or Sally Glenn at 970-948-8278 or use our email at aspenvetsparade@comcast.net. Come hear the cheers and applause for your service along the entire parade route.

As Americans, we gather on Saturday to celebrate our 239th year of independence. Please take a moment as they pass by to let our veterans know how you feel.

Hugh Roberts
