LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
UAVets at rally in support of troops
On Saturday, March 22, members of Ukrainian American Veterans Post 40 were proud to participate in a rally to "Support Our Troops" at Veterans Memorial Park in North Port, Fla.
The rally was sponsored by the VFW Post of North Port. There were about 300 people in attendance, mainly veterans and their families. The rally was opened by young naval cadets with the presentation of colors, the singing of the national anthem and the "Pledge of Allegiance."
The speakers emphasized that we should pray for the safety of our troops and their speedy return home to their families.
To some of us it seemed that it was just a while ago that we were young and being sent overseas to fight for our new country. And now it is happening again.
We are grateful to the new generation of heroes who protect us and our freedom while they face danger.
God protect our troops and God Bless America.

Taras Hunczak's article on Walter Duranty just scratches the surface of this fascinating, malevolent and deranged personality. Anyone interested in learning more, including about his experiments with Satanism (no kidding!) might take a look at the fascinating biography by S.J. Taylor called "Stalin's Apologist."
