    Base Realignment and Closure May 17, 2005

    The Honorable (First Last) Address

    Joe W. Smith Address

    Dear Senator

    I am writing to you to voice my concern over the BRAC changes proposed to the Air National Guard as a whole and specifically Missouri's own 131st Fighter Wing based in St. Louis. As a citizen of the state of Missouri, I personally feel more secure knowing the F-15 Eagles of the Missouri Air National Guard are nearby to provide Homeland Defense for the Midwest.

    There are numerous high profile targets in and around St. Louis, including the Gateway Arch, Boeing facilities, nuclear power plants, and other military facilities that have no fighter protection of their own. The protection that the 131 st Fighter Wing provides is immeasurable. It might be shortsighted to believe the wing would not be called upon in the future.

    The Guardsmen of the 131 st Fighter Wing live and work right here in the community. These citizen-soldiers are our friends, neighbors, business associates, and defenders. The 131st Fighter Wing, represents generations of Missourians who have proudly volunteered to serve the state and nation. The BRAC recommendations released on May 13 greatly diminish and in many cases eliminate the citizen soldiers for several communities, including St. Louis.

    I ask that you support the Air National Guard by NOT supporting this BRAC.

    When the BRAC recommendations come before Congress this fal~ please take action against the initiative. Keeping the Air National Guard intact is key to keeping our homeland safe. Thank you.
