Why no overseas help for our disaster victims?

Letter to the Editor

So far I haven't seen any reports of any foreign country sending any kind of assistance to this disaster on our East Coast.

In the meantime, our troops are overseas rebuilding schools, roads, bridges and everything else. Why aren't they here helping our taxpayers who have been without power, water, food and all the things these other countries are receiving with our foreign aid?

Something is very wrong in this country.
