Letter: Hatch’s Memorial Day speech disgraceful
First Published May 29 2014 05:17 pm • Last Updated May 29 2014 05:17 pm

Sen. Hatch, you owe every Gold Star family in Utah a personal letter of apology.

You were extremely disrespectful of the honorable men and women who have died serving in the United States military when you used a Memorial Day ceremony in Woods Cross for political purposes; assailing the Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act, and urging folks to vote Republican.

Sen. Hatch, there are no politics in remembering our sons, daughters, wives and husbands who gave their lives for their country under Presidents Washington to Obama.

Sen. Hatch, by trying to wrap yourself in our flag and fallen patriots for your personal political agenda, you have disgraced our state, U.S. Senate and country.

No, Senator, you cannot say whatever you want, and you have hurt us all.

Al and Kathy Snyder

Gold Star family, Mendon
