In the midst of election rush, we hear lots of talk about jobs, and deficits and failing infrastructure.
One place where we can find money is in the military budget. Come find out how much of our resources are lost to a defense budget that uses our tax dollars, perhaps unwisely, in 800 or so military bases around the world, unnecessary, outdated weapons systems, and unwinnable wars.
Does your elected official know what your priorities are? Come find out how you can get them to listen, how we can support the troops and their needs while decreasing the defense budget.
