To the editor:

The Eisenhower VA Medical Center stated that the veterans’ team named the Fighting Totos could not go to the National Veterans Golden Age Games 2019.

They said we had not raised enough money.

As a team we would like to know why.

We cannot fight if we do not go to the event. We are the Fighting Totos of Leavenworth.

As veterans, we fought for you so why not fight for us?

As veterans, we are fighting for our lives, fitness and therapeutic value of the Games.
