Letter: War deaths do serve a purpose

On Page 4A of this week’s edition, there was a piece called “Deaths serve no lasting purpose” This was a good article, ...until you got to the last paragraph. “Memories like those would make us want to search high and low for different alternatives” True. But then you had to go on to infuriate me, every patriotic American, and slap the face of everyone who gave their lives so you could print this: “A death in war, sadly, never serves a lasting purpose, no matter how noble the intentions are.”
