Freedom isn’t free

Editor:

In response to Jaan Carter’s letter ("Protecting Regular Folks," Jan. 30). A "clinic" is not a "huge VA facility." If you live here in America, then you are a free person. Freedom does come with a price to those who want to live here. I’m sorry if you don’t want this VA clinic here, but the price veterans paid to keep us free deserves some exceptions don’t you agree? As they did not fail us when we needed them.

If you feel this is a stupid idea, I do understand. I thought the same thing as a young man in the jungles of Vietnam.
