I must respond to Glenn McCoy's cartoon on Feb. 27. After 20 years in the Navy I've earned those "entitlements."
I'm not against having my COLA reduced, I'm against being singled out. The day legislation is proposed for an across-the-board pay cut, i.e. all government workers, including elected officials, I will be the first in line to support it.
Having served 13 of those 20 years on board ships. missing countless birthdays, anniversaries, Christmas and the death of one of my closest friends, I know the meaning of sacrifice and teamwork.
