End Militarism Please copy this letter, or some version of it, and let Defense Secretary Dick Cheney know not all Texans support the shameless military boosterism of our newspapers and chambers of commerce. Shut the Bases Down! Secretary Dick Cheney Department of Defense The Pentagon, Washington, D.C., 20301 Dear Dick: Just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how happy we were to hear about the three proposed military base closings in Texas. Thank you for helping to demilitarize our state. One favor: We ask that you not forget the bases in El Paso, San Antonio, Wichita Falls, Central Texas and the Gulf Coast, to name a few. We would also like to point out that Texas universities remain inundated by military projects. This money could certainly be put to better use financing schools, health care, and affordable housing. Any help you could offer to further demilitarize Texas would be greatly appreciated. Yours, CLASSIFIED ORGANIZATIONS LESBIAN/GAY DEMOCRATS of Texas Our Voice in the Party. Membership $15, P.O.
