Letters To The Editor Another Vietnam

Posted: October 08, 1986

Charles Liteky, 55, has been fasting since Sept. 1 in front of the U.S. Capitol to protest intervention in Nicaragua.

Mr. Liteky had received the Medal of Honor as an Army chaplain in Vietnam for having put his life on the line to save 20 wounded GIs.

Now this brave man is again making a statement with his life by not eating until our government realizes we are in another Vietnam, with our military aid to the Nicaraguan contras. He has been joined in his fast by three other veterans.

So far there has been little or no press or television coverage of this heroic fast. I hope The Inquirer will provide coverage.
