What's your favorite setting to see a movie?

In a good ol' fashion theater. There's just something about watching the big screen with a bunch of strangers.
The drive-in, if there's still one around. It's more cozy.
I like to rent and watch them at home. You never know what you'll dig up at the video store.
Who pays for movies anymore? Free download, couch, cheap popcorn.

Thank you for raising awareness

1LT, Armor (OE2) retired, CA ANG

By Dan Bronson

While I am not disabled, I served 30 years in the California National Guard and the Navy and Army Reserves. I spent several training periods at Camp SLO—especially my California Military Academy field exercises (OCS) and graduated OCS there in 1985.
Many military retirees and those with military related disabilities are living on low and very low incomes. The importance to them to have access to inexpensive housing may make the difference for some between becoming homeless or not.
I could end up in this kind of situation myself someday.
Your article (“Park it elsewhere,” April 25) and the public awareness that comes from it could be the difference in the lives of many. Thank you.
