Thrivent Financial (merg-ed result of Lutheran Brotherhood and AAL) says they are outsourcing $10 million dollars of information technology jobs to India.
Is this suppose to make us Americans want to work with Thrivent?
Forgotten no more
As I stated in a previous letter to the editor, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, the governments of South Korea and the United States are awarding a commemorative medal to honor the veterans of that conflict. If you served on the Korean peninsula or provided direct support to the troops, between the dates of June 25, 1950 and July 30, 1953, you are eligible to receive this commemorative medal. If you qualify, please contact me so we can get you on the list. We have set up a presentation ceremony at Camp Ripley at 5:30 p.m., Aug. 23. So far I have been contacted by over 80 vets who are qualified for this decoration. We will also present these medals to widows and surviving family members. All we need from you is a verification on your discharge papers of your service during the specified times. Please contact me at 963-4730. It is about time that you are no longer among "The Forgotten."
Maj. U.S.M.C. (Ret.)
Get over it
This is to reply to the lady from St Cloud about the land where the new super Wal-Mart is proposed to be. Well if it's not Wal-Mart then it will be someone else building there. The owner of that property will sell it to someone else. They want to make a profit and I for one don't blame them. Brainerd is a high population city and it keeps getting bigger. That is what happens to a town. It's called progress. I'm glad we have progress otherwise lots of us would have to move to find work. Why didn't people make a big deal out of Home Depot or Menard's or even the proposed new Kohl's store. I wish people would just get over it.
