Letter to the Editor: F-35 making progress toward greater affordability
Placeholder Image
From Mike "Gunner" Furgal Vietnam Veteran, USMC Monroe To the editor: As a combat veteran who proudly served this nation in Vietnam, I understand how important it is to have superior defense aviation with which to protect our brave ground troops during combat operations. Yet, as a taxpayer, I understand the concerns regarding the costs to support and ensure the effectiveness of programs in areas such as defense. With a program such as the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, however, I believe the investment made by the taxpayers is worth it.
