The Henderson County Quill from Stronghurst, Illinois (2024)

Quill, Ill. Wed, Sept. 4, 1990 71st Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Hull of Dallas City have, celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary on Saturday, August 4, 1990.

The couple have enjoyed several gettogethers with family members and friends. Letter to the Editor Dear Editor: Benefits and entitlements to veterans and their dependents have been cut at all levels of government. The remembrance of this nation's veterans and their deeds on the field of honor stops after the cannons fall silent. It seems the country wants to blame the soldiers for the unpleasantry of the wars in which they served. Currently this nation has called to arms many sons and daughters who are being faced with imminent danger.

Actions in the Persian Gulf have already taken the lives of Americans. Newly discharged Armed Forces members and those not serving before 1976 are not viewed as veterans in the eyes of the State of Illinois. Perferences for State of Illinois jobs are not given to veterans that served in times of conflict after December 31, 1976. Those serving during Beirut, Grenada, Panama and now the Persian Gulf aren't veterans according to Illinois. It is time to stop this injustice and make Illinois recognize all men and women who have served in the Armed Forces.

The Veterans Action Committee urges all veterans and their families to call or write your state Representatives and Senators to change this gross unfairness. Also, you may write the Veterans Political Action Committee at P.O.
