Cold Veterans Day

Nov 21, 2018

To the Editor:

Thirteen years ago, we bought a house in Florida; we became snowbirds, returning to LBI each summer. For all those years, we celebrated Veterans Day in warm weather. In Florida, the local shops and restaurants heavily advertised discounts for veterans in preparation for Veterans Day. The merchants there created an additional form of warmth to express their appreciation to veterans. I searched the recent SandPaper for one similar ad; there were none.

On LBI, Veterans Day is cold in more ways than one. I am disappointed and saddened by our LBI merchants.
