This letter is in response to comments made by Lt. Col. H.J. Hogan (retired) in a letter to the editor March 13 ("Military hospital disrespects veterans").
I am also a retired veteran of 20 years' military service. I have been to the emergency room and pharmacy at Eisenhower Army Medical Center many times during the past 23 years since I retired. I have nothing but respect for all the staff at both the emergency room and pharmacy. I have always been treated with respect, no matter what clinic within the Eisenhower Medial Center I have dealt with.
All of the staff at Eisenhower Army Medical Center should be commended for their professionalism. "Mr." Hogan needs to get a grip on himself, and face the fact he is no longer on active duty as a lieutenant colonel, and he should just appreciate that we retirees are fortunate to have a fine medical facility such as Eisenhower to support us.
"Mr." Hogan needs to take his military rank insignia off his civilian shirt and just "suck it up." Face reality, "Mr." Hogan, you are no longer on active duty - period.
L.C. Lewis, master sergeant retired, U.S. Army, North Augusta
