DEAR ABBY: I served in the LI.S. Navy from February' ’87 until February '91. I served the better part of that time overseas in the Philippines working as a postal clerk at the Fleet Mail Center, Subic Bay.
I still wear my dog tags all the time, and sometimes people will see them and ask, “Were you over there?” (meaning Saudi Arabia), and I say, “No, I was in the Philippines most of the time." Then they say, “Oh.” like “No big deal."
I can speak for most of the people I worked with that it was no picnic. Several coup attempts took place w hile I was there. (A Marine sergeant was killed about three blocks from my house.)
Abby. I would like people to know that even though we weren’t “over there." we did our part during the Gulf crisis.
DEAR SAILOR: You make an excellent point. Every' man and woman who served in any branch of the armed forces — whether or not they were in a shooting war — did their part.
Time away from one’s family is no picnic, whether one is serv ing in “the Gulf ’or Gulfport, Miss.
DEAR ABBY: This concerns “Illinois Victim.” who was being beaten by a man in her yard, and the neighbor who didn’t even call the police. His comment (“I didn’t want to get involved") interested me.
Some time ago, I saw a driver who appeared to be drunk cause a serious accident. I immediately called the police to tell them I had seen an accident: no one even w anted to take my name or telephone number. After IO calls, one hour later, someone grudgingly took my name and phone number, saying, “Someone will call you.”
Nobody called until six months later, when I got a subpoena through the mail demanding that I appear in court. In large letters w as this threat: “IF YOU FAIL TO APPEAR IN COURT A WARRANT WILL BE ISSUED FOR YOUR ARREST."
Abby, in the school where I teach, if a teacher takes a day off. the teacher must pay the substitute. I got a substitute for the day of the trial, only to be called that morning at 8:30 a m. and told that the case had been postponed! It was too late to cancel the substitute, so I lost that day’s pay.
Yesterday, I got a notice for the next court date, which means I will have to hire another substitute. Now do you wonder why no one wants to “get involved"? I am being treated more like a criminal than a witness! After six months. I hardly remember what happened, and because I wanted to be a good citizen, I am now being penalized. Please comment.

DEAR SUN CITY: As an eyewitness, your testimony could be crucial in this case, so please don’t abandon your responsible

ity as a good citizen.
And by the way, whatever happened to one’s constitutional right to a speedy trial? “Justice delayed is justice denied,” said William Gladstone, who was prime minister of England in the late 1800s.
But, of course, our courts were not as clogged in the late 1800s as they are today.
DEAR ABBY: I have been happily and faithfully married to my husband for 14 years. The problem is with our family doctor. Recently, my husband thought he had a bladder infection, so he went to our doctor, who ran one urine test that turned out negative. Then the doctor informed my husband that he had a sexually transmitted disease!
My husband asked if it was possible to have had this “sexually transmitted disease" for 14 years — or was there some other way of getting it? Also, wouldn't it be wise to run another test just to make sure?
The doctor insisted that his diagnosis was correct, then with a smirk he added, “I’m not suggesting that you run home and beat your wife, but you obviously got it from her."
Abby, no wife could be more faithful than I. I never even looked at another man in more than 14 years. My husband says he believes me, yet he’s been having bad dreams ever since. I know I'd be accused of “protesting too much" if I confronted the doctor. This is a small town, and it could make matters even worse. Besides. I hear that this doctor thinks all non-churchgoers (like my hus
band and myself) are pretty much “scum" anyway. What can I do? I’m not taking this lightly.
BRISTLING IN ARIZONA
DEAR BRISTLING: First, change doctors—even if it mean* getting your checkups in a nearby town.
According to Dr. Willard Cates Jr., director of the Sexually Transmitted Disease Division of the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta: “No diagnostic test is IOO percent accurate. Your husband should be retested to confirm the original test result.* (Some sexually transmitted diseases can lie dormant for long periods of time; also you failed to mention which one your husband allegedly has.)
The doctor who accused you unjustly is guilty of unprofessional behavior. He was also in error in refusing to perform more definitive tests. Report him to your county medical society.
DEAR ABBY: I’ll get right to the point. I am 45, female, divorced, no children, and I’ve been told that I am very good-looking. I live in Beverly Hills, Calif., but will travel anywhere for the right opportunity. All I want is a decent man — age is no object as long as he’s ambulatory, but he has to have money. Any suggestions?
LOOKING FOR DADDY WARBUCKS
DEAR LOOKING: Gail Sheehy said, “The best way to attract money is to give the appearance of having it.” Trust her.
