Letters to the Editor

Letter: Bergdahl

The fact is the Coast Guard let Bowe Bergdahl go because he couldn’t handle the job. He shouldn’t have been able to enlist in another service without them investigating to see if he could handle the more stressful position they were putting him in. Was he just another body count? He has family, too.

Yes, there are reports that six other young men with families were lost going after him. That wouldn’t have happened if he hadn’t been there. Why didn’t they stop him when he was walking away?

We are a military family. We lost a son. We know what it’s like.

As far as the five enemies in trade, thank goodness the taxpayers don’t have to feed, house, torture and baby-sit them anymore. They will get theirs, I’m sure.

It would be nice if people wouldn’t be so disrespectful to the president of the United States of America. It seems that he is damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. Search your soul.
