Letters: McNerney supports military

Dear Editor,

Contrary to the some allegations, Congressman Jerry McNerney has been a supporter of our military. As a retired Air Force officer and having earned seven Vietnam campaign ribbons I admit that I abhor war. Yet McNerney has supported our military and as a junior member of the House Veterans Committee has directly caused Veterans Administration care improvements. His efforts to develop a San Joaquin VA facility and keep Livermore VA open are notable. He also pushed for military pay increases and has visited the war zone several times. His dedication to serving the needs of all those living in Congressional District 11 is apparent to anyone who is unbiased.

William Evans, retired USAF Lt. Col.
