To the editor:

I feel the village of Rantoul should fight to keep that missile right there in its place.

Tell the military to leave it alone. I’ve grown up here in Champaign-Urbana, and that missile has been there and represents a lot. The Air Force should not have rights to it no longer.

They moved and left it, so it’s Rantoul’s. If that goes, so does a lot of Rantoul history. It’s bad enough the flight museum closed, but that missile means a lot.
