Yesterday, the commander of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) and U.S. Northern Command visited the tent city that was set up to house troops deployed to assist border operations.

One might wonder why Gen. Terrence J. O’Shaughnessy -the commander of NORAD- would need to inspect the operations at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Arizona but defending our border is one of his roles as the commander of Northern Command.
