My name is Robert Batey, and I have voted for you Both times and you have won. I am writing you , because I don't think you should downsize our Military, especially in this day and age when other countries are building up theirs. In order to have a strong deteriant military hast to be strong, a strong defence, and you are doing just the opposite. Not only will military families be out of a job, after they have served this country so well. Please rethink what you are doing, and how this will effect others!

Thank you for listening
