In reference to the sound-off letters in the Monday Belleville News-Democrat, they were the best I’ve read in a long time. Almost everyone echoed my concerns. It sounds like the people of this region are getting tired of all the local bull as well as our USA leadership. The Scott leaders arrival really got my attention. It’s a very good point. But as a retired service member I understand the comment. It must be mind boggling to the non-military public. Perhaps a newspaper article on the total mission of Scott would be very beneficial to the general public.
