Member of the Year

Great things are accomplished one task at a time by one American Legion Auxiliary member at a time: one offer of help to the wife of a deployed serviceman; one volunteer assisting with a community blood drive; one friendly invitation to another woman to join the Auxiliary. The efforts of our members add up to millions of hours and millions of dollars annually in service of the Auxiliary's mission. Those members whose extraordinary dedication energizes their units -- and thereby the organization as a whole -- are honored with the Unit Member of the Year Award.

Weeding out phony warriors

Bragging about military honors you didn't receive is despicable yet still constitutional, says the Supreme Court. I agree. But help is on the way for those who want to weed out the fakers, if Congress can put aside its own battles long enough.

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Of course, reasonable mistakes don't include the right by officers to act without provocation or to use undue force. And ...
