Letter: Air defense is needed to protect Washington

Air defense is needed to protect Washington

After the unbelievable gyrocopter landing on the Capitol grounds, I think it’s time that we station U.S. Marines armed with Stinger surface-to-air missiles at several important buildings in Washington, D.C., for example: the White House, the Capitol and the Pentagon.

I also would recommend that a Patriot missile battery be stationed in the open area in the middle of the Pentagon to handle multiple, larger and farther away air targets, so an enemy wouldn’t be able to hit vital and important government buildings in the area by air.
