Veteran upset over France’s memory loss

Editor, the News-Herald:

As a veteran of both Vietnam and the first Gulf War it saddens me to read of the news that our forces and the coalition forces have found caches of Iraqi weapons manufactured by, and purchased from France. It appears to this reader the French are motivated by the sale of their war arms rather than keeping world peace. And that is the French’s second problem, their first problem is their lack of memory! Seems they have forgotten the tens of thousands of American GI’s who gave their lives ensuring France’s freedom. Shame on you, France!
