Dear Sir:

A few weeks ago when I received the issue of the Union Press Courier which had the highlights of 1969, I was very much disappointed.

As I read through the month of March I noticed that one tragic highlight was not mentioned. The one I'm referring to is the death of my brother, Marine Pfc. Cyril T. Yeckley. He was killed in Vietnam on March 13, 1969. He was the only young man in the immediate area that gave his life, not only for his country, but for yours as well.

Sincerely yours,
Mrs. Wasco A. Kotrick
