To the editor:

I am in awe of the lack of concern/interest in certain events such as a parade on Memorial Day.

To all of the city leaders, Leavenworth is a city primarily made up of active duty military, reservists and veterans of our armed forces and to just toss out the idea of a parade in honor of those men and women who have served, are serving and have served is a slap in the face.

On something such as this, a budget should not be an issue. If it is, then those in charge of our city’s planning/budgeting department should re-think priorities.
