U.S. Representative Martin Heinrich (NM-1) sent a letter to President Obama expressing his strong support for beginning the drawdown of U.S. military forces in Afghanistan in July 2011.

In the letter, Rep Heinrich said, "We have spent over $450 billion in Afghanistan since the start of this war. Our youngest soldiers now serving in some of the most dangerous places on earth were just eight years old when our nation was attacked on Septembers 11, 2001. It's time we start bringing our troops home."
