Peter Macdonald - Town of Lee NH Evicts US Military Veterans

To the Editor

            What does it take to get the newspaper to report the news?  On separate occasions the Lee Selectmen evicted two different homeless US Military Veterans from Church property.  The Town of Lee’s reason “We are a community of Professors and UNH support staff so we do not deserve homeless in our neighborhoods”.  I paid last week to have it printed in the news as an advertisement.  I have heard on face book it went wild.  The truth is a powerful weapon but silence can destroy democracy.  What is wrong with the news media ethics when it comes to our US Military Veterans?  Homeless should not be a reason to forget us.
