Letter to the editor:

Military parade is costly, useless

As an American, no matter your political affiliation, you should be outraged and disgusted at President Donald Trump’s self-serving, militant display that cost the Department of Interior and our national parks $2.5 million.

What’s more important, maintaining and improving national parks or an illegal, taxpayer-funded political campaign event disguised as America’s birthday gala? You get to decide in November 2020.
