600 Rio Grnade Valley Guardsmen of the 3rd Battalion, 141st Inf Regiment of the 36th Inf Division of the Texas Army National Guard received their call up orders to report to Fort Hood in March for possible deployment to Afghanistan in the War on Terror.
The Weslaco-based unit includes Guardsmen from Laredo to Brownsville, and is the first time the whole battalion has been called up since WWII.
The above link is to the TV station broadcast only.
I'd like to see them deployed to the US-Mexico border in the WOT. Who gives a damn about Afghanistan. I keep hearing about how we can't protect our own borders due to lack of manpower. Really? What the hell is going on with the Bush admin anyway? Selling out our security for latino labor and votes? Yeah, Bush is sure concerned about our security.
Once upon a time, long long ago, the National Guard was to guard the Nations borders.
Not some other nations borders, ours.
But now, we have no fence around the hen house, and the big bad bear and his buddy the dragon is salivating.
It is called political irresponsibility at best, and High Treason at worst.
