WE HAVE OBLIGATION WHEN CALLED TO DUTY

In the Dec. 8 Buffalo News, a writer stated: "No country is worth dying for."

There are always people who do not want to face their obligation and duty as citizens to serve in the armed forces when needed. They would rather let others do it for them. During World War II they were called draft dodgers and slackers.

If all felt that way, we would long ago have lost the freedom we enjoy. Many have served when called; some have made the "supreme sacrifice." It will be required again. Freedom does not come cheap. Cowards should lose their rights as citizens.
