Every week we receive thank-you letters from boys in Viet Nam for the
program tapes we send them, free of charge. Typical of their letters is the
one quoted below:
"I would like to thank you and all the men at WKNR for the tape that I was
very glad to receive. Myself, and a few other men from the Detroit area are
enjoying it very much.
"You were so right about the tape bringing
home just a little closer. Hearing the news and the KEENER jingles takes my
mind from this place and brings me home for an hour. That only a letter from
home can do.
"This tape shall go home with me to remind me of the people who did care for
the men over here and not the protesters who were so few but spoke with such
a loud voice. For myself and all the men in Viet Nam I want to thank you and
everyone who have taken, but even a minute to think of us over here."

sent the copy of INSIDE KEENER which informed all readers of that occasion.
We learn that that particular copy of the paper is now part of the
fraternity scrapbook. (Does this mean we are now a syndicated newspaper. or
just scrap paper???)
