To the editor:
My name is Tracy Jackson and I am the street
superintendent for the city of Lincoln. Most of all I am a VETERAN,
and what took place at All Veterans Park last night makes me sick. A
couple of young men tore down five flagpoles and stole four flags.
Those things can be repaired or replaced, but to dishonor the
veterans of this county cannot be repaired or replaced from these
I just hope that in time they are caught and prosecuted.
Most of all I hope that one of their parents is a veteran. I know
then that justice will be done.
