Wisconsin should get behind its veterans

March 25, 2014 | 0 comments

Dear Editor:

Our state is well-known for many varieties of artisan foods made by the capable, hardworking hands of family growers and producers.

Wisconsin remains America's Dairyland because of our milk, cheese, and dairy products; those delicious and healthful products come in so many forms like a savory cheddar cheese spread, snackible cheese curds, thirst-quenching milk chocolate, warming hot chocolate, or a delectable cheesecake.

Our farmers and producers have also made Wisconsin famous for other familiar tasty favorites: Wisconsin is known for its many types of sausage, including brats, kielbasa, and even venison sausage. And let's not forget about our sauerkraut, Kringles, and maple syrup.

From my personal experience I know that our federal government strives to adequately and affordibly feed our troops deployed overseas. However, their best effort just can't compare with the comforts of home because they simply couldn't include those foods I listed above.

Veterans serve not because the government provides them a luxurious lifestyle abroad but because they love their home and where they come from and they choose to defend that life and that home. Veterans are real people who protect and honor our precious freedom each and every day.

Our current National Guard troops who get deployed overseas are no exception.

Therefore I encourage our state to take one day to recognize their valor and sacrifice. Imagine just one day for these soldiers serving far from home, when these Wisconsin troops could get all three meals coming from Wisconsin's best producers and processors.

It would be a great morale booster and it would tell them that Wisconsin is firmly behind them. As a soldier, I was proud to serve overseas, and now I am proud to help promote this thank you to our brave men and women serving abroad.

Jeff Peck
