Priorities scrambled

I am so ashamed of our government. We can’t afford to send Medal of Honor winner Vernon Baker’s family to Arlington National Cemetery for his burial, but we can afford to send the first lady to Spain on a vacation.

Remember one thing; he was the only black serviceman to win this award during World War II. Go in peace, Vernon, you are my hero.

Fred Bozanich, USN, Ret.
