Recognize second-shift veterans, too

Published: Saturday, Nov. 23, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

I would like to thank all of the businesses that support our nation’s veterans. Here in Dixon, I only wish that they would support those veterans that work second shift.

Not everyone works a day job. There also are people who work different shifts and cannot attend the things that some of the restaurants have, because they have it only at night. 

For all of you who put an ad in the paper supporting all veterans, I highly praise you. Please do not forget.

I also would like to say thank you to my employer, Anchor Coupling, for supporting and recognizing the veterans.
