3. I am a member of the community next to JBLM

City of Lakewood to be exact. I am a Vietnam era vet. We enjoy having a great many active as well as retired military families scattered throughout the area. As a member of this community I can report that we have had our share of grief, (the tragic loss of four of Lakewood's finest still stings hard), but I want you all to know that OUR troops at JBLM are not a problem around here. As a matter of fact, I am not alone in paying the tab at the bar or restaurant for a soldier when possible and my disc golf club has had the good fortune of getting to work with the Wounded Warrior Program. We appreciate what our troops have been through and we are grateful. I am of the opinion that JBLM is not the problem. The problem is with our military as a whole and stems from the way we have thrown our boys and girls into this insane war against the peoples of the middle east.
