‘Homos’ belong in the closet, ladies at home | Letter


Given the recent nasty and uncalled for attacks in our local liberal/communist media on our gallant U.S. Navy, I just had to comment. As a retired Navy chief I’ve seen my share of anti-American crap in Whidbey newspapers, but the latest attacks on “the sound of freedom” take the cake.

I lived under the flight path for Outlying Field for years and can honestly say that I never minded the noise.

Truth to tell I’m almost completely deaf due to jet noise from many years of flight deck duty during World War II.

I bet half the people complaining are hippies on the dole taking money from hard working Americans on disability like myself.

Just remember what the Good Book says in 2 Samuel 22:10 about our gallant pilots: “And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly: and he was seen upon the wings of the wind.”

So there!

And don’t get me started on women and homos in the military. In my day, the ladies stayed at home and homos stayed in the closet where they belong. We in the Navy are progressive, just not that progressive.

But that’s a topic for another day. God bless our boys in the Navy!
