Learn pronunciation

Since most of the candidates are giving us pretty much the same pitch, I have decided to cast my ballot for anyone who can properly pronounce the word “veteran.”

Having had experience as a combat soldier in World War II, I consider myself not a “vetrun,” “vetrin” or “vetran,” but a “vet-er-an.”
