Regarding “Why no R&R for soldiers?” (Letters, April 17): How do I adopt a platoon? My family has been filling boxes for servicemen for more than 40 years now. Our servicemen do more for our country than the president does. Then they are treated like (expletive) when they get back home. We need to do more for them: housing, jobs, friendships. Be thankful and caring and loving.
