Different military voting experience

Published: Friday, Mar. 28, 2014 - 4:03 pm

Re "Military secret ballet not guaranteed" (Letters, March 23): Bud Lee implies that a military member does not have a right to a secret ballot. Maybe the military has changed since I was a member, but I can tell you in the 22 years I served in the U.S. Air Force, I never once had a superior officer question my voting or tell me who to vote for. Also, as a squadron commander or supervisor, I never got involved in my subordinate's voting other than to urge them to vote.

I'm not saying it doesn't happen. I'm just saying Mr. Lee is generalizing. Hopefully, The Bee's readership understands that.
