Ariz. gov.: Send Guard choppers from other states

• Breitbart
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is asking President Barack Obama to reallocate National Guard helicopters from other states to help Arizona secure its border with Mexico.

Brewer made the request in a letter to Obama dated Thursday and released Friday.

She says Arizona only has four OH-58 Kiowa helicopters available for border missions because some choppers are deployed overseas and others are reserved for training missions.

Brewer requests that additional helicopters be freed up from training missions or taken from other states and assigned to the southwestern border.

The governor acknowledges her request may be unpopular with other governors, but she says she believes there are legitimate national interests in sending more aircraft to Arizona.

It would be nice if our National Guard was kept at home to protect "our nation" and border and not that of other foreign countries (for what ever reason) The State Governors need to tell the Federal Gov. (Obama) No! you can't have our States' National Guard troops anymore...they are needed here!


Gov. Brewer is probably the only gov. that has the balls to do that!


You Go Girl!
