Responding to Hansen’s letters on SEALs

Karl Hansen and I will have to agree to disagree on our opinions as to what happened in Benghazi. First Mr. Hansen offers a correction in that the Navy SEALs were not Navy SEALs. They were ex-Navy SEALs fighting to save lives. This oversight comes from my background as a Marine. Once the title is earned there is no such thing as an ex-Marine. We are sworn to live and die by the creed of Semper Fidelis. Translated Mr. Hansen that means "Always Faithful".

Hansen’s research was not good enough

Two bona-fide heroes died in the service of our country in the Benghazi attack, along with two others brave Americans, and all a pathetic individual who probably never wore the uniform can do is disparage their sacrifice. Well Mr. Hansen, your "best research" was not good enough.

Boy Scout urges citizens to stop littering

My name is Zach, and I am in a local Boy Scout troop. When we go on troop hikes, we take a trash bag and pick up our trash along with other litter left on the trails as part of our leave no trace efforts. I am disappointed at the amount of extra litter we come across. And would like to ask people to take their trash out with them so others can enjoy nature too.
