Vail Daily letter: President’s speech

John T. Chain Jr.
Vail, CO, Colorado

I’ve been in my wars. Currently, my grandson is a Army Special Forces Green Beret, a sergeant, with two tours in the “sand”; and my nephew is a Navy Seal lieutenant, also with two tours (on his second one now) in the “sand.”

I watched the president’s speech Tuesday night. As Mr. Mazzuca asked: “Would the president take credit for ending the combat operations in Iraq?”

Now we know the answer.
