To The Editor:

I am writing this letter to you to express my sincere thanks to you folks for doing the tribute to the military in The Missourian. I especially like the tribute to my son, Kurt Riggs.

With the special section that you did you touched a lot of people’s hearts past and present. Too many times we neglect to thank our country’s men and women in the armed forces for the job they do.

A simple “thank you” now is probably not enough but I felt your efforts needed to be recognized. I pick up a copy of The Missourian twice a week and appreciate what you cover. I truly enjoy reading the news and the various features you present.

Thanks again.

Richard “Marty” Riggs
