I was shocked by your decision to run the front page picture of one of the many women that did their duty to our country, by working in the factories to support the men and women serving in the military (“Franklin woman worked as riveter at World War II plant,” May 26.) Your second story offering was not enough to make up for the error.

“Serving in the MILITARY” is the key phrase.


Memorial Day is the holiday to honor the men and women that gave their lives to protect our freedoms!!!!

Your representation was severely misplaced.

You should be ashamed and apologize to all those who have served.

Another day would have been a better time to honor the sacrifices made on the home front!

Think your friends should see this? Share it with them!
