Local view: We can honor war dead by seeking peace
Our local veterans’ organization — Veterans for Peace, Chapter 80 — has been denied access to participate in Duluth’s Spirit Valley Memorial Day parade this year. We took part in previous parades and believe we presented our message respectfully and that it was well-received.
The purpose of Memorial Day is to honor and remember people who lost their lives in service to the country.
