Chairman’s Corner: Ask the Chairman

By Navy Adm. Mike Mullen
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17, 2011 – I am getting ready to launch my third installment of “Ask the Chairman: A Virtual Town Hall,” and I need your support.

Over the next few weeks, I will be seeking and collecting your questions on any topic you want to raise. This is a great opportunity for troops past and present, their families, and other concerned citizens to get to me directly and in an interactive manner.

For service members, especially those who have served abroad, this is your chance to address the decisions we make here in the Pentagon that affect you on a day-to-day basis. Let me know what’s working, and what’s not. Let me help explain something that may seem confusing to you now.

But, as I said, “Ask the Chairman” is not limited to our troops. I hope to hear from family members, other concerned Americans, and citizens of the world as well, because in these critical times, there are challenges across the globe which demand our attention and our steady focus.

To participate, just send your question via YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, or any other medium from now until the end of the month. I will answer those questions in the next and future segments of “Ask the Chairman.” Send your questions today. I’m waiting to hear from you.

Why aren't we using our military to help protect our own borders? There is a continuous flood of illegal immigrants from everywhere pouring into America. There is a war goiing on in Mexico that is overflowing across our borders and harming our own people. When will the military be called to protect our own country? Thank you for listening.

If we are allowing Sharia Law in America, how can American laws protect those who are harmed or killed under Sharia Law?

In the light of what happen to CBS's Lara Logan sexual assault (a total outrage) in Egypt, what is US Military going to do to step up it's efforts to protect our brave and courageous women from these heinous assaults on their person? These good women already put their lives at risk for our nation, and to deal with these despicable assaults disparages the uniform for all the good guys who live by a personal code of honor.. The fellas really need to kick these bums out of the force.
