r Are Returning Veterans
^ , "Different"?
During the war 70a heard a lot
about how hard it waa coins to be
for returning veterana to set ad
justed to civilian life ... how
they'd be "different."
Well, plenty of them have re
turned to our town, and a finer,
steadier bunch you couldn't ask
lor. Most of them are back at the
aame jobs . . . going with the
same nice home-town girls (get
ting married, some of them, and
setting up families) . . . renewing
the same old friendships.
Eren their amnsements are the
sane. Nothing more exciting than
fishing Seward's creek or pitch
ing horseshoes . . . enjoying an
outdoor barbecue with friendly
wholesome beer and pleasant talk.
If they've changed at all it's in
the direction of maturity and tol
erance . . . tolerance for everything
except dictators, and those who
would destroy our democratic
principles of live and let live. And
from where I sit, that's another
reason to be proud of them.
