'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Letter to the Editor
Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

Congratulations to the veterans of World War II who showed everyone around the country why they are members of the “Greatest Generation” and how they won the war (“Veterans bypass barriers to closed WWII memorial with lawmakers' help,” Oct. 1 and TribLIVE.com).

Their mission was to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., and nothing was going to deter them.

With their determination, they reminded all that these memorials and buildings and this country belong to the American people — not the politicians.

So, raise your glasses high and salute all those, both living and deceased, with a toast: “To the Greatest Generation” — we will not see their kind anymore.
