Letter to the Editor: Disappointed

— To the editor:

Am I the only one who was very disappointed by the PBS presentation of the Fourth of July Capital program?

I kept waiting for units of our Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force to be introduced and honored, but it never happened.

Another left out tradition was the wonderful, appropriate song, “God Bless America.”

The choices for songs were poor. Presentations by publicly known veterans were also missing.

If asked, I would give the whole event a possible rating of C.

Here’s hoping next year’s will improve.
