>Veterans For America call for McCain to address the National Guard crisis in NJ

>I was contacted today by Max Bernstein, who does blog outreach and press for the group Veterans for America. 

He wanted everyone to be aware that John McCain was in New Jersey today and that the Veterans for America want him to address the National Guard crisis here in NJ.
” Half of the NJ National Guard is deployed or is at Ft. Bliss in TX preparing to deploy, and the effects on first-responder capabilities, local communities, and Guard families that has resulted from the emergency conversion of these weekend warriors into frontline soldiers has been palpable. We hope you help call attention to this issue – thanks!”

Thank you Max for contacting the MiddletownMike blog about this issue, I will try and keep everyone updated on the work that the Veterans for America is doing.

Blue Jersey has a good post about this today titled John McCain is in New Jersey Today. Half of NJ’s National Guard Isn’t.
