Statements affront to every veteran who has fought

A Nov. 15 online writer commented under your editorial “More political punishment” at mauinews.com that many in the military have nothing else to do in battle but drink or do drugs. This is an affront to every veteran who has seen battle and bears the scars of such action.

The commenter goes on to state that some, I take it to mean veterans, do not seem to care because they have free VA health insurance and health care is free. Tell that to veterans with missing arms, legs, sight, and the veterans who are bed-ridden or in wheelchairs.

Such scurrilous remarks by this individual should not go unnoticed. Apologize, not to me, but to those whom you have maligned.
