I would like to comment on the recent little mini parade through town for the RFHS gymnastics team.
I am completely disgusted that our community would have a parade for high school state champs but not for our troops.
Don’t get me wrong, I am proud of our girls for winning, but I am more proud of our men and women over there fighting for their lives and our freedom. The only welcome home anything that the community had was a few welcome home signs on a couple of local companies.
The first time that they came home they got pulled through town on a wagon with a truck, but some gymnasts get to go through town on a fire truck. The second time our troops came home they got nothing.
I think the community needs to get their priorities straight.
