Letters to the Editor
Oregon Indian Open
To the Editor,
November II is Armcstice
Day or Veterans Day, a day set
aside for all servicemen who
served in the armed forces.
Memories of Pearl Harbor,
North Africa, Italy, the Nor
mandy Invasion, the battles of
of the Corral Seas, the Soloman
Islands and IwoJinia willallbe
Also to be remembered are
the sounds of battle in Seoul,
Tacjon, Teagu, Changjin Reser
vior, Hungnam and Inchon.
Dan Nang, Hue, Khc Sanh,
Dien Bien Phu, Plieku, Ho Chi
Names of places men who
served will remmember always.
The tough times hardships men
faced are now in the past but
strong feelings remain. Veterans will soon have a day set aside to
honor fallen comrades and to honor all who served in the armed
forces in times of need.
Everyone has their own memories of those times. Some
remember trudging up the long tough trail from Africa through
Italy, others remember the Normandy Invasion, while others
remember the island strong holds of the Japanese. The battle of
Tarawa, Siapan, I wo Jima, Okinawa. The days of world war when
the end looked so far away until they dropped the "Bomb."
Then came the North Korean invasion of South Korea. U.S.
called on its boys again for some police action, which turned out to
be just as tough as any war that was ever fought. "The forgotten
war." Korea, which is considered one. of the most mountainous
countries in the world, staged some bloody battles. In Korea it was
the first time men took the top of a hill without taking a step.
That's where the use of the helicopter was introduced for move
ment of troops. This method was used throughout the Vietnam
But no matter where men served, there was the hardships of long
battles. And no matter which war he served in, the veteran should
feel proud to have served his country, especially under Old Glory.
Yes, Veterans Day will be here and we will once again pay tribute
to all thoe who gave their lives for everyone to be free.

Once again, thank you for your support.
The following letter was directed to
Tribal Council on October 9, 1989.
To the Editor,
I read with outrage the new
Juvenile Code that allows up to 60
days before a jurisdictional hearing
is held in a child custody case. See
Warm Springs Tribal Code
360.230(2). The hearing require
ment was once 10 days, then the
court changed it by its own rules to
20 days and now you've changed it
to 60 days. Do you realize what
you have done to the poor children
who don't really understand why
thev have been taken awav from
their mom? They dont have the
same sense of time as adults. Two
days away from Mom can be eter
nity and now youVe sentenced them
to 60 days.
I hereby request that you hold a
special Tribal Council meeting to
discuss this issue. And, furthermore,
I ask members of the community to
talk to your Tribal Council repre
sentative about this issue and, if a
meeting is held, to please attend.
