Letters to the editor, June 8

Thanks, VA

I have lived in Denton for 14 years and had many different doctors.

Not until two years ago, although I am a veteran of World War II and Korea, did I begin going to the Veterans Affairs clinic in Denton.

One of the first things a physician assistant asked, after listening to my chest, was how long since I’d had a chest X-ray. I couldn’t even remember.

He gave me an X-ray and found a spot on my lung, and sent me to the Dallas VA hospital for a C-scan.

I have emphysema and will receive treatment, thanks to the VA.

Bill Hughen,
