Letter: Keep the Armed Forces on U.S. Soil

To the Editor:

The terrorist attack on New York seems like it was just yesterday. I worry about our future. Who is double checking on the nation’s security now? With all the outbursts of violence happening in many countries overseas, why are we allowing our military to fight over there? I want them to be home in their own country; it is better to fight the enemy on our own soil. They say that military action far away in other countries will keep them from attacking us, but if that is so, why did the attack of Pearl Harbor happen ? Why did 9/11 happen? Where are our watchdogs, and who is protecting the people in the U.S.?
