E-mail Print PDF
One year left to graduate high school, a young woman with the whole world in front of her with endless dreams and potential – dreams of not only serving in the U.S. Navy and commanding ships but to ultimately become one of the most powerful women – takes a quick turn to becoming a prisoner – a victim of domestic...

I am a veteran of the United States Army, having served four years in the Korean Conflict. I am 82 years old and I have served my country along with three of my brothers who are deceased. We served our country and we were honored to serve our country.

Having served our country, I am eligible for the benefits that come as a result of my service. Unfortunately, this service is very difficult to access.

In order to be served by the Veterans Affairs, I have to wait long hours to be seen by a provider. I have to arrange to have my family members transport me to the Albuquerque VA Hospital for specialty care. This is a two-and-a-half-hour drive one way and then I must wait 5 to 6...

Have stopped in Gallup numerous times in past 15-plus years and always enjoyed many aspects of your town.

For first time, stayed at Microtel hotel and found this statue in foyer. Very much enjoyed the hotel, until noticed this “subliminal stereotype” in AM! If noted checking in, would have canceled! Offensive? Like having Abraham Lincoln’s selling alcohol?
