Posted9/11/2013 5:00 AM

Your story about the 17-year-old soldier who sacrificed his life in the Korean War gives us cause to reflect on almost 90,000 still missing in action.

Looking back at World War II and looking back at those who fought to preserve our democracy, when we consider the 25-year Cold War with Russia with not one fatality, it clearly indicates consultation is the answer before we forsake the lives of our gallant servicemen and women in service to our country.
