Letter: Admiration for doctor’s sacrifice



It was so refreshing and positive to read the Aug. 4 Columbian story, “Local physician, grandfather in the Army now,” about Lt. Col. T. Scott Woll of Portland. Here is a physician who probably is very comfortable in life and yet steps up to serve our country and the troops.

Our son is presently serving our country at the Bagram prison in Afghanistan. It is reassuring to know that people like Woll are out there and ready to take care of our sons and daughters if needed.
