I read some of the comments in response to my letter and I came away with a conclusion that some of them did not get the point I was trying to make. I watch the “World News” daily on my laptop. There is turmoil in different parts of the world. The one that concerns me most is North Korea. I urge your readers to access “North Korea.”
I was trying to send a message to your readers wherein in part I stated that; “We must be prepared to use whatever it takes to protect ourselves and our “motherland.” “Guam has various military bases as their contribution to defend our freedom. We also benefit from the generosity of Guam. We must also be willing to contribute and accommodate the strategic need for our own security”.
In reading the responses against my letter, I get the impression that they did not fully get the point I was trying to make. We must also be willing to contribute and accommodate the strategic need for our own security.
Other than the leasehold property on Tinian, what have we done to show the Defense Department that we recognize the sacrifice our men and women in uniform are enduring. WE SHOULD AT LEAST SAY, THANK YOU. Above all, let’s begin by thanking our own native sons and daughters in uniform by showing our appreciation—SI YUUS MAASE… Thank You. Is it too much to ask?
