Dear Fellow Americans: I am worried about the future of the United States . As a Veteran, having served in the 1/10th Air Cav, US Army, I am alarmed that there is an effort to cut Military Retirement Pensions. The current planned cutbacks in the military will leave our country in a very grave position. Continued Military support for Israel is vital. The proposed military cutbacks. put too many jobs at risk, It is wrong and harmful to our Army. A loss of 80,000 troops is foolish at this time. We are facing too many threats. These military cutbacks send the wrong message. We are putting hope in the hearts of the terrorists: JUST HOLD ON, the US WILL FALL. We are telling our Military Families: WE HAVE NO VALUE FOR YOUR SERVICE. We are telling our Young People: THERE IS NO FUTURE IN MILITARY SERVICE. I support: Meals on Wheels, Head Start, Senior Housing, Free College Education and 1-Strike 50 for Crimes Against a Child.
