Columnist Robert F. Dorr has once again missed the mark regarding the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. ["Some vets still more equal than others," Nov. 16]. His insinuation that we regard Cold War veterans as "second-class citizens" is disingenuous, and the facts reveal a different story altogether.

As a Cold War Vet who was awarded Navy Expeditionary Medal with one bronze stars I have earned the right to join the VFW to which I have done proudly. Yes on a National Level the VFW dosen't treat us like second class members,
but at the local level there are times the "senior" members will question my right to be there.

That is changing slowly as they are learning about me and my time served, and the fact that myself and other
Cold War vets are the next level of leaders of the VFW to keep our local post alive for those that are currently
seving our country in war zones
