In the picture in the Sept. 16 Pilot Tribune, the DAR thought it only proper to have those defenders of the Constitution, the Korean War Veterans, to observe the signing. They agreed. It is the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Korean War and these brave men did protect us and our Constitution in that war.

It is the hope of the DAR that all people will reflect this week on the Constitution of the United States and what it means in our lives. Since we are a nation of laws, our forefathers penned a document that gave us these laws, protecting our freedoms and our form of government that for 213 years has stood the test of time. These 39 men who signed the Constitution pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to uphold these laws. We are forever grateful to them.
