Recent news of our troops being sent on missions in Iraq without proper equipment is disturbing. We are paying billions of dollars to fight this war. I for one believe that our troops should have the proper equipment. One cannot blame the reserve unit from South Carolina for not going on the mission when they did not have safe equipment.
I urge everyone to contact their congressman or senator and demand that a full and thorough investigation of this incident be carried out before any action is taken against these soldiers. I also urge them to contact the headquarters of the Kentucky National Guard to demand that all of our reservists and national guardsmen be properly equipped before entering a battle zone.
Whether you agree with this war or not, you cannot disagree about our soldiers being properly equipped. We can show our support by contacting those in authority.
