Dear Mr. President,
Recently you discussed wasteful military spending with Senator John McCain, who pointed out that a new naval helicopter assigned to you might reflect wasteful spending. Examples like this, however, aren’t the only examples – even in the Navy.
I am equally concerned about a past practice of having marginally, or perhaps even unqualified naval pilots in the military destroy U.S. planes through accidents that more qualified pilots might have avoided. Beyond the obvious and primary concern about casualties and injuries, this unfortunate practice costs the American taxpayer dearly in wasted tax dollars and is a national security threat. Such practices should be ended and the pilots involved held to account and dismissed.
Thank you for your concern.
