Whidbey jet noise: Don’t be selfish

I don’t normally write letters to the editor, but I just had to weigh in on Monday’s Whidbey “Roaring controversy” article [page one, Dec. 23]. I’m with the Navy, all the way.

Even though I served as an Air Force pilot during the Vietnam era, a time when we weren’t exactly thanked for our service, I have always respected the special skills of Navy pilots. And training is critical to develop and maintain those unique skills. To those who are complaining about the activity at Outlying Landing Field (OLF), Coupeville, what happened to “thank you for your service?”
