As far back as Fannie Johnson can remember--and that's all the way back to World War I--her family has dutifully heeded the nation's call to arms. "I was little, but I remember my relatives being in that war," said Johnson, sitting erect in her favorite chair by the front window. Fighting in France during the war was Ernest Johnson, a fellow destined to be her first husband.

Saudi Arabia's recent political actions repressing women make it clear that the United States is not in the Persian Gulf to protect freedom, democracy or human rights. We should not use our resources or the men and women of our armed forces to defend the interests of a country that subjugates a segment of its people. We will never set the moral standard for the world as long as we continue to compromise our principles. ROCHELLE M. LINDSEY JODY COHAN Los Angeles

Defense Secretary Frank C. Carlucci traveled to Saudi Arabia on Thursday amid unease among the Persian Gulf oil states about a possible cutback in U.S. naval forces protecting shipping against Iranian attacks. Western diplomats said that Carlucci, conducting a wide-ranging review of U.S. policy, will seek to reassure Saudi Arabia that any reduction will not signal a weakening of Washington's support for moderate gulf states.

"Despite Unrest, U.S. Firms See Promise in Mideast" (International Business, Oct. 10) speaks of "regional efforts to liberalize economies," but are you aware of a barrier to free trade being instituted by the Saudi Arabian government under the auspices of the Saudi Arabia Standards Organization and a British company, Inchcape Testing Services?

I recently (August) left active service in the Naval Medical Corps after six years as a surgeon. My colleagues from my last hospital are now all deployed on the hospital ship and at various hospitals in Saudi Arabia. I write them often. In return, I have received letter after letter describing the poor preparedness and absolute "idiocy" permeating the medical operations. The credibility of the surgeons writing is unquestionable. They speak of an inept supply status that caused surgical activity to cease after performing several hernia repairs at a Marine hospital in Saudi Arabia.
