More people should write similar letters!
As for some of the other responses, a SDF is voluntary. They are not full-time military personnel. They are small units, Missouri's is organized in
4 man units, then 2 unit commands, and then on up the chain.
Yes, this would be a terrific place to go "deer" hunting. It would be a shame if you were in a National park doing lawful activities, and you had
to "defend yourself" against known criminals. Just a shame. Be careful though, because they are likely better armed, with more people, and daily
combat experience. These cartels are not weekend warriors, they are full-time criminals and they have seen a lot more shooting than you have.
Posts staggered near the border and away from the border at 1 mile intervals with constant communication and air support would surely secure this
entire area. 4 man teams at 1 mile intervals and at the very least you could have cameras on balloons overlooking the area, although police choppers
with infrared vision would be much better. In the event of someone coming into view, several outposts could convene on the area to give you a force
of 12 to 24 within a couple of minutes! Local law enforcement would respond to any distress calls, and you should be able to overcome even a large
cartel incursion! We are talking 300 men, not 3000, and we are talking 2 helicopters at most.
If the incursions continued more than a time or two, or the fighting escalated, then the force should be bolstered and the invading parties should be
pursued back to where it came from and destroyed at all costs!
That is border protection! That is how the entire Southern and Northern border should be protected!!
