We need our military at home

Editor:

I wholeheartedly agree with Vince Popo’s points in his June 5 letter to the editor with the headline ‘Our veterans have faced much worse problems than we do now.’ Today, I think the biggest challenges our military faces are domestic. We need to bring our troops home from being thinly spread around the world. There are many reasons.

The BP oil spill has placed petroleum products at a premium and the military is the largest petroleum products user. Therefore, we need a rapid withdrawal of troops from foreign countries. The military must be placed on our own borders to examine everything coming and going from our nation, and confiscate all weapons and drugs.
