To the editor:
As a Korean War veteran serving from June 1950 to Nov. 1953, I’m writing in support of my friend, Bridget Bailey. She is an attorney, supportive of veterans and supportive of the veterans’ service office. She is aware of the need for a local office in The Dalles to assist veterans.
Two of Bridget’s cousins presently are serving in the U.S. Navy. Her uncle, Tom Bailey, served in Vietnam and a nephew served in Afghanistan.
Bridget is caring and personal, and I believe she will protect our local veterans’ service office. Having no knowledge of all of the benefits I was entitled to prior to moving to Oregon in 2007, I went to the local veterans’ service office and through Mr. Russell Jones, who not only advised and helped me get the benefits I knew nothing about.
Both Bridget and I would appreciate your support and your vote.
B.B. Barrett, U.S. Navy
