Are any members of the press available to show up and ask why the people of Kentucky need National Guard services in distant lands, absent any military emergency, national emergency, draft, or declaration of war?

Ceremony to bid farewell to Kentucky National Guard as prepare for deployment to Poland

“A farewell ceremony took place on Saturday, July 15 at the Paducah Tilghman High School. Friends and family gathered to celebrate their loved ones before they deploy to Poland the next day to aid in the war in Ukraine.”

These are the troops who need to maintain a place to live and a regular job in their hometown area when they are not doing time in foreign lands helping DOD with undeclared/unwon wars and missions completely unrelated to their home state.

A few decades back, people might think of the National Guard as one weekend a month and two weeks in the summer plus a way to support your home state by being ready to get called out for floods, fires, natural disasters, civil unrest, etc. Maybe a way to help the next state over if they needed it.

In recent years, the National Guard has been sent to Syria, Africa, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Kosovo.

Love to see newspeople ask:

Has a $51.6 billion (every 12 months) US Dept. of Homeland Security ever created any shortage of cartel product anywhere in the US?

Are newspeople forbidden to ask questions related to Homeland Security funding and performance?
