DAVID WOMACK, DAHLONEGA, GA, USMC, SGT. RETIRED, 1969-197
I am glad I found you guys I live 5 miles from the border
Jose M. Cantu Jr, Mercedes, TX, ARMY, SFC, 1953-197
Veterans must stand up, again (on our own if neccessary, to protect America at home, while our sons and daughters are fighting over seas. I am sad and shocked at our governments smugness and/or unwillingness to "protect and serve" their legal Americans.
Ralph Velotti Sr., Cleveland, TN, USN, BTC(SW), 1975 - 1995 - 20 years
I ARRIVED IN SOUTH KOREA, IN 1953, AND WAS SENT TO THE FRONT LINE TO GUARD THE SOUTH KOREA BORDER FROM INVADING NORTH AND CHINESE SOLDERS. WAS TOLD HOW OUR FREEDOM WAS ON THE LINE, AND TO PROTECT THE BORDER.(TOO BAD CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT DOES NOT BELIEVE OUR BORDERS ARE NOT AS IMPORTANT AS WAS SOUTH KOREA BORDERS.

I stood on the lines in Viet Nam and I'll stand on the lines here.Where do we go from here?
William Wiltz, Peoria, IL, USMC, E-3, 1969-1971
Vietnam was not a good place and now with this invasion of illegal aliens,Arizona has become as bad as being overseas.
With most Americans not knowing what these illegals and their government have planned ,in due time,Mexico will be in charge of the "late" U.S.A.
Gringo had better wise up.
Remove everyone that is illegal, including their offspring.
Joe Olivas, Phoenix, AZ, Army, SP/4, 1968-1970
Any person wanting to come into my land should do it only after completing proper procedure. Illegal imigrants should not be entitled to any benefits that the working tax payers have work so hard for (example Social security). Any politician that tries to give away our benifits or our freedom to include the President should be removed from office.
I am a puerto Rican veteran, it will be a cold day in hell when I will stand by and allow my government to distroy everthing that I work so hard to get. If the time comes to put a weapon up against my own government to protect what we (The American People have)I will do so without hesitation. When we had tax without represintation we had a tea party, what kind of party do we need to open the eyes...

i went to viet nam for america not for the new world order.
robert hansen, new douglas, IL, army, pvt, 1968-1970
Yes, we are under attack at our borders. We must continue to dispense the neccessary information to inform the public of the anarchist behaviors of the illegal aliens who represent nothing this Country is about.
Shannon Seim, North Hollywood, CA, US Army, E-4, 1989-1992
All Americans must organize and act as a unit to defeat the illegal alien immigration and globalist agendas that threaten our very nation and childrens' futures.
James Willette, Gresham, OR, Army, SP/4, 1963-1966
The present and any future US Government could best serve its people by enforcing current immigration laws.
Raul Delgado, Laredo, TX, ARMY, E-4, 1970-1972
iIwasnt in the military but my father gave his life for our freedom. Richard W. Miller died last year as a result of multiple cancers from agent orange, he faught the disease as hard as he fought for us and I'm requesting this for him as he didn't give what he gave to have it treated so cheaply, we need to secure our borders or give you guys back your guns! Sorry i get a little irate.
katrina mclaughlin-benson, omaha, NE, army, sgt, 1967-69
Sitting in Tay Ninh Province in 1969, did I ever think I would have to do it again in my own country. Wow! The politians have done it to us again. Time to fight!
Paul Olson, Lake Forest, CA, Army, E-5, 1969-1970
I view this as one of the foremost threats to national security and the future sovereignty of our nation!
Harold Cooper, El Dorado, KS, USAF, A1C, 1961-1965
Too bad the President and Congress have mental "dyslexia." I agree that there's an invasion of illegal aliens, mostly through Mexico,(Mexico has NEVER sided with the U.S., even in WW I.I.). I also believe it's partially supported by China and other countries who are intent on conquering our nation. We need to keep fighting for our freedom by badgering Congress to do what is right for the United States of America, instead of their special interests.
Frank Dare, Olympia, WA, USAF, Captain, 59-64,65-80, 90-98
I have nothing against people coming to America if they do it according to the laws established. I also believe that if foreigner come here legally they should be required to speak english as a first language! There is more to the invasion of illegals than meeets the eye! There is I believe a definite plan to overthrow our government! Look not only at the nation theyu come from but also the religion! Not that I am against religion on the contrary: I believe in Jesus and his teaching! However this has the looks of a modern day crusade!
Norman Karo, Fallon, NV, U.S. Navy, E-7, 1968-1988
Lets get-r-Done, secure the boarder, by force if needed.
Steven Polk, Avoca, AR, USMC, E3, 1967/1970
The future of our country depends on the actions we take today. Most of our representatives betray our trust and voted for legislations that are not in the best interest of the American people and in violation of our constitution and the rule of law. We Americans must take action and vote out of office all the traitors.
Juan Reynoso, San Antonio, TX, Navy, E-5, 1955-1959
As a third generation Native Texas I am very familiar with the negative effects of Illegal Immigration.
I have had the great displeasure of seeing my once well kept, quite and safe neighborhood overrun and ruined by illegals from Mexico.
They have absolutely zero intent to assimilate into our culture and fully expect U.S. Citizens to assimilate into their culture and speak their language.
James Boren, Lewisville, TX, United States Marine Corps, Corporal E-4, 1966-1969
We are being invaded!!! By illegals of many nations and of many adverse political persuasions and fanatical beliefs that are detrimental to the welfare and safety of this great nation. You want into this country, you do it the right way, THE AMERICAN WAY~ Legally and with allegiance to the ideals for which America stands. "To defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies; foreign and domestic"...that's the oath I remember taking in 1968 and have lived by ever since. I will defend her until the day I die! "DEEDS NOT WORDS" - I was a proud member of Alpha Company, 3rd Battalion, 22nd Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division - Vietnam - III Corps.
Andrew Alday III, Pukalani, Maui, HI, U.S. Army Infantry, Spec. 4, 1968 - 1970
I fought and fought hard. I am not going to let ANYONE just sneak in and take what I bled for. My grandson want to fight to secure our borders. They shouldn't have too.
Leonard Angel, Gainesboro, TN, Army/Air Force, PFC, 1940-1945
American citizens are being killed and kidnaped on the southern boarders. Who amoung you will serve as citizen to defend and protect our boarders. Time to lock and load.
Kenneth Smith, Franklin, TN, US Navy, EM 2/C, 1959-1965
The government has had 6 years to secure the border after 9-11, but all we get are excuses, promises, and a lot of tax payer money spent with NO real results. The U.S. spends more on other countries borders than on the mexican/U.S. border. 30,000 + American military to guard the South Korean border. Open border liberals are going to destroy American. A true disgrace when a government tracks gun owners more than illegal aliens.
G.W. Ethridge, Hermitage, TN, Army, Colonel, 1964-1999 (35yrs)
I feel that securing the borders is long overdue,and the current Republican administration has done nothing to correct the problem. I bet if Lou Dobbs were president our military would be rounding up illegals instead of giving there lives over in Irac for a senseless war.
Gerald Spradling, Bland, MO, USArmy, corporal, 1960-1962
We must take back our great nation before it is too late.
Jerry Kranendonk, Apache Junction, AZ, USAR, MSG Retired, 21 Years
I'm tired of all of the beurocratic bullshit, I'm old and I'm ready to die for a truly free America again, for my children and grandchildren!!!

George Parker, Wellton, AZ, US Army, SFC USA Retired, 34 years
I will continue to defend my country from this invasion of illegals as I did for 20 years as a Marine.
Jim Dowling, Tucson, AZ, USMC, GySgt, 1986-2006
I'm deeply distressed over the policies encourged by the present administration encluding the "no end" war. Our borders must be secured and now.
Wesley Howell, Pine City, MN, USMC, E4, 1960-1964
Illegal immigration is exactly what the term implies, ILLEGAL. Our government needs to get on board to halt the massive influx of these illegals regardless of their country of origin. The economic implications should scare the hell out of the middle class since they are paying for both the rich and the poor as well as the illegal.
Don Freeman, Lakeport, CA, United States Navy, STG 2, 1966-1970
