Troops: Election needs bigger military focus

B Brendan McGarry - Staff writer

Seven out of 10 career-oriented service members say military issues are not getting enough attention in the presidential campaign, and nearly 30 percent don’t believe their vote will matter, according to a Military Times poll of nearly 2,200 troops.

Navy Fire Controlman 1st Class Robert Benjamin Pryor of the Aegis Training and Readiness Center in Dahlgren, Va., said he would like to see more discussion of plans for troop levels and military funding.

Poll results
“I don’t think we’ve heard enough about what the candidates’ plans are to try and build a better military,” Pryor said. “From my personal experience in my command, I’ve heard that money is scarce and repair parts are few and far between.”

Marine Corps Reserve Capt. Matthew Nichols, logistics officer at 1st Battalion, 23rd Marines, in Houston, said he would like to see more candidate discussion of military strategy in Iraq and Afghanistan, and of negotiations for a status of forces agreement in Iraq.

I'm sorry, I cannot comment. This issue steams me up
more than a batch of broccoli. Just heard on the local that homeless votes WILL count.

Our Men. Our Women. Choosing to leave family behind and fight and sometimes die for
America's Freedoms and some of their votes won't count.

(shaking head)

Is there anyone out there who can fix this? Anyone?

CryHELP!! Cry
  

PEACE ON EVERYONE
