Shrinking Army

Dear editor:

Hey Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, you made a proposal to shrink the size of the U.S. military.

Now I have a proposal for you

Be a true leader and be the first one out of the fox hole. Yell and shout “Let’s go get ’em” and announce the cutbacks you are personally taking instead of trying to cheat the real heroes (and their families) of the United States of America.
