County residents support Air Force

County residents support Air Force

As a proud citizen of Quay County for many years, I would like to reply to the Quay County Commission’s resolution opposing the low-altitude training flights over our county.

With due respect, I have more confidence in the Air Force’s planning and safety skills than I have in our county commission in its infinite wisdom.

I think the security of our country is deserving of the cooperation of our community.

I would like to convey a message to the Air Force at Cannon, or wherever, that there are more patriots in Tucumcari and Quay County than politicians with ego problems:

We patriots are annoyed over the tarnished image created by this problem. We welcome all of you to visit us every chance you get. By air or on the ground, you will be among friends.
