Letter to the editor

Following are responses to an FCW.com poll question that asked, "Given an opportunity, would you work for the Homeland Security Department?"

I think working for homeland security would be an honor to serve my country. I have longed for this country to step up nationally and internationally, and eliminate the threats that jeopardize our freedom.

We are extremely generous in our undertaking of non-U.S. citizens who are continually searching for a democratic society. The United States has some pockets of economic/social areas that will always require reform, but we are much better off than some of the G8 nations.

I am looking forward to seeing the permanent establishment and execution of the goals and objectives the president is setting for Homeland Security. I desire to be part of that history.

Holloway Coats Department of Housing and Urban Development

I support all the way the creation of the Homeland Security Department. Although certain jobs require critical skills, I feel that I can contribute to a certain extent with the agency if given an opportunity.

I worked and traveled the world many times and am familiar with governmental and business policies in Asia, the Middle East and Europe. I can speak four languages. It would be nice to expand my international expertise and serve this great country for which I am grateful indeed.
