Veteran Calls On Charlottesville City Council to Let Monuments Speak for Themselves

Retired Army veteran Dr. Arnold Huskins urged that the historic statues in Charlottesville, Virginia, be maintained as they are. Added comments demean them, and it’s unfair to judge people who lived in the 19th century with 21st century values, he wrote. “These men served their homeland regardless of whether they agree or disagree with all its governmental policies,” the amateur historian wrote.

Key Takeaways:

  • These statues were raised to remember our military veterans–notable veterans who served the state of Virginia without question–when the state summoned them according to their conscience and familial obligations.
  • Like all military personnel and myself, these men served their homeland regardless of whether they agree or disagree with all its governmental policies.
  • Moreover, the individuals whom these statues represent lived in the 19th Century and should not be judged according to 21st century values and societal norms.

“Like all military personnel and myself, these men served their homeland regardless of whether they agree or disagree with all its governmental policies.”
