Write a letter to the editor opposing wasteful Pentagon spending.

If your letter is published, please email info@winwithoutwar.org with a link.

The letter below is only a sample. If you have a local budget-related anecdote, such as roads, bridges and schools in disrepair, add those by name somewhere in the letter. Members of Congress and their staff will definitely read your letter if you mention them by name. You may want to change the last sentence to read:

"Instead of approving President Obama’s request for $600 billion on the Pentagon, I hope Senators XX and XX, as well as Representative XX, will shift more money back into our community."

Step 1 - Select a Recipient

Letter to the Editor

The Letter to the Editor Section is one of the most widely read sections of the newspaper and can reach a large audience. It allows community members to comment on the way issues are being addressed in the media and to influence the topics the local paper may choose to cover. Elected officials often monitor this section of the newspaper and take notice of constituents' opinions.

We've made it easy for you to contact your local newspaper with your views, but editors want to hear from you in your own words.
