Secession talk is both cowardly and un-American

Dec 5, 2012 - Ron Howard, Riverton


So Wyoming has joined other states in petitioning to secede from the union. To even suggest something like this is not only un-American but cowardly.

As a veteran of the U.S. Army I can say that I didn�t serve my country for all those years just to end up in 2012 living in a divided nation.

This country is facing huge challenges. There�s nothing new about that. �

We have always faced huge challenges, but many people in this country want to run away from our problems instead of facing them head on like true men and women should.

I�m sure there are those who will disagree, but scared is scared no matter how you slice it. They want to turn tail and run.

How shameful. Grow up, America. �
