Letters to Sam
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     Candy sat at the table. She had paper, a pencil, and some crayons. Mom came and looked over her shoulder.
2     "What are you doing?" asked Mom.
3     "I am trying to write a letter," said Candy.
4     "That is good," said Mom. "People like to get letters. Who are you writing your letter to?" asked Mom.
5     "I am writing to Sam," said Candy.
6     "What a good idea," said Mom. "He will like that."
7     "Is Sam a veteran?" asked Candy.
8     Mom said, "Sam is a soldier. He is serving our country. Yes, he is a veteran."
9     "Will Sam be able to doctor animals then?" asked Candy.
10     "What makes you ask that?" asked Mom. "Sam is a soldier, not a doctor."
11     "When Bosco hurt his paw, he went to the vet. I have heard veterans called vets," said Candy.
12     Mom smiled. "That word can have two meanings."
13     "You mean that an animal doctor is not a veteran?" asked Candy.
14     "If he fought in a war, he might be," said Mom. "An animal doctor is a veterinarian. Men who serve in the military are veterans."
