SALUTE  -  If there is anyone in these parts who still thinks the Berlin situation and the general increase in international tensions throughout the world are remote phenomena which don't really mean much to us here in Ontario County, last week's news of the untimely death of Canandaigua's Captain Paul J. Lynch should serve as a startling reminder that these events hit very close to home.
Captain Lynch, better known as Father Lynch, was an Army Chaplain and the first such in the Rochester Catholic Diocese to be killed on active duty since 1918, when the Diocese began furnishing chaplains to the armed services. His death occurred when the helicopter, in which he and five others were flying in line of duty, crashed on a lonely ice cap in Greenland.
As time goes by, and we are afraid, as the international crisis mounts, we suspect that more and more Ontario County men will become personally involved in helping to defend our way of life. Meanwhile we salute Captain Lynch and we take this opportunity to salute the other men and women from this area who are serving in the armed forces. Let us never forget how much we owe to those who sacrifice so much in order that all of us may live in peace, with Justice and freedom.
