In response to the letter "McCain doesn't know what war really is" (April 2), regarding John McCain: The letter was emotional; it carries absolutely no weight and is thoughtless in nature. Any man or woman who knowingly puts themselves in jeopardy and offers their life in service to their country knows what war is about. Whether they are in a foxhole half full of water, flying combat missions or clinging to life in a New York City skyscraper matters not. When someone is trying to kill you, it doesn't matter where you are.
Thank you for your service to our country, but don't try to corner the market on suffering.
