Ada —

To the Editor:

I would like to publicly thank the Chickasaw Nation for the very nice landscaping they installed at the Pontotoc County Veterans Memorial on the lawn of the Pontotoc County Courthouse. As a veteran, and as the cousin of Ernest Agee, the first name on the World War II monument there, I am pleased to see the site respected and beautified.

This monument has long been neglected. Now that the Chickasaw Nation has done so much work there, I hope the local officials who walk past it each day as they enter the courthouse will see to it that the site stays watered and maintained for years to come. Neglecting that monument is not only an eyesore, but an insult to our fallen veterans.

Again, thank you to the Chickasaw Nation for beautifying yet another part of our city.

 

Tom Agee
