Memorial Day riflemen photo was incomplete

The Forum’s front-page picture of May 26, showing five riflemen shooting a 21-gun salute from atop the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, was deplorable.

As a veteran, I was appalled. There was to be seven riflemen, not five, as was pictured. Somehow, two were left out.

In my regard, seven riflemen shooting a 21-gun salute is most commendable, even more so than a picture of the president of the United States doing whatever on Memorial Day.
