Pentagon fails to keep troops safe [Letter]

It's time that the paper generals at the Pentagon go. They are more concerned about the gays in the military and women in combat than protecting our soldiers on American soil ("Fort Hood shooting: Iraq vet was being treated for mental health issues," April 3).

There are tens of thousands of workers at the Pentagon who have never dodged a bullet and make five times as much money as our soldiers. After the first shootings at Fort Hood, they learned nothing and then we had the same thing happen at the Navy Yard.

The leaders at the Pentagon have become uniformed politicians only caring about themselves and forgetting the main role of a true leader is to protect the people who work for them.
