Won't hurt veterans

In Jack Holmes' letter [Sept. 14], he complains about the negative impact of health care as "un-American." He then states that he has served 26 years in the military and is concerned about the health care that he has "earned, and was promised."

There is nothing in a projected bill that would in any way jeopardize any veteran from receiving full benefits from the Veteran's Administration -- after all, it one of the finest forms of government medicine that has been given to our veterans for many years, and will not affect, in any way, that service for our veterans.
