Seeking ways to support veterans

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

To the editor:

I read the article in The Leader about raising the price for ice cream licenses. I was wondering if anyone was collecting signatures for a petition or doing any kind of fundraising for the Veterans who this impacts? I'm truly appalled by this and wanted to at the very least offer my signature (as well as my family's names) on a petition.

I live in Pittsburgh and have been vacationing to Wildwood my whole life (30 years) with my family. My dad went to Wildwood when he was a kid and he continued the tradition when he had his own family.

We usually do a couple trips to Wildwood each summer, a week long family vacation and a Labor Day weekend trip.

One of the great things about Wildwood is its commitment to history and tradition. I can't remember a time when those ice cream guys weren't walking the beach all day. My family has purchased countless treats from them over the years and we recognized certain guys year to year who patrol our spot on the beach.

Honoring tradition and supporting the veterans who selflessly served this country is extremely important and shouldn't be impacted for fiscal reasons.

Please let me know if there is anyway to show support for these individuals.
