  •  Just emailed Sen. Roberts (4.00)
    Since I live in Kansas, and Senator Roberts seems to be inclined to blam other people other than his prez, I thought the considerate thing to do was to email him encouraging him to be patriotic this July 4 and encourage his children/grandchildren to join the military.  Below is the text of my email.  I would encourage everyone to write their Republican senator or congressperson and encourage them to do the same.  We need to put the pressure on them through to put their money where their mouths are.

    Senator Roberts,

    I see by your comments regarding the military recruiting crisis that you think the media and official critical of the handling of the war are to blame for the lack of recruits.  If that is the case, I would think that in your immediate family you have either sons, daughters or grandchildren of military age that would be itching for a chance to serve their country and fight in the military.  I would sincerely hope that you are using your position of respect in your family to encourage them and their friends to enlist and engage in an honorable stint in the military, for I too am worried about the lack of recruits and the need to sustain the enlistment in Army and Marines especially.  I hope you share the same concerns and do your best at every level to see those problems corrected.

    Thank you for your time.

    Very Truly Yours,
