It has come to my attention that Carbon County and surrounding areas have an abundance of veterans.
Therefore, I am surprised that the memberships in veterans organizations are on the decline.
The VFW, American Legion, AMVETS, and Navy Club are all hurting. Some even had to go out of business.
Veterans parades are poorly attended.
Some fundraisers don't meet expected goals. Meeting requirements to work with the area is becoming harder each year.
These are the only organizations where a vet can go and other vets share experiences.
