Reader shares his story of construction workers’ show of respect

To the editor:

I saw something last week that I thought was so wonderful that I wanted to share my story.

I was on Telegraph Road by an auto parts store when I saw a funeral procession heading to Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. There were approximately six construction workers who were working there and all of them took off their hats and put them on their hearts.

As a veteran, this really touched me. Thanks to them, and all who are willing to sacrifice for this country — past, present or future.
