Proud of town

Thursday, December 22, 2005

Dear Editor,

Here in McCook, we have our fair share of problems, just as any small town does. But with that said, there is a lot that the people of McCook should be proud of.

My husband deployed to Iraq for his second tour this last July. The outpouring of support that I have received from family, friends, neighbors and even strangers has been nothing but beautiful.

The people of McCook are genuine and understanding, not to mention the level of patriotism that I have seen. McCook truly represents the Midwest spirit of being friendly and a good neighbor. I have been awe struck at what everyone has done for my sons, my husband and myself.

I am proud to say that I am from McCook and want to thank everyone for what they have done.
