As we approach the final two weeks of this drive, I want to bring your attention to an audio clip of an interview with Jason Vose on KISM Radio's Brad and John show. This is now officially national!! Thanks Jason and thank you Brad and John!!!
I also want to thank so many people who have come together to support this effort. From those who grew up with Doug to those who fought by his side across the globe to those who didn't even know Doug but understood his lasting impact of professionalism, courage, and heart through family and friends. Doug's hometown of Concrete, the teammates, brothers and fellow Green Berets to include those soldiers from across services and support have come together to help make this possible. So many have come together in an outpouring of support. BUT"¦there are many out there who have not come forward. Those who HAVEN'T KNOW WHO THEY ARE and now, I WRITE TO YOU.
You have thought about it and may have said to yourself or others, you will contribute. Maybe you are hesitant because you don't see support you think should be in the forefront; the Vose family. Or maybe you haven't supported because you don't think this is even possible and worth your effort. Maybe, you don't trust the site or use of credit card where you are. If you fall in the camp of the first and second argument, my comment is that of pity; joining a fight dependent on the will of others, unable to fight on your own. I hope life has and will continue to show you mercy. Rest assured, the Vose family doesn't NEED your help and has already made this a reality but has offered the honor of joining the effort and show you either knew Doug and want to be part of his legacy or simply respect what he stood for and want to be part of something that will memorialize him.
For those with contribution method issues, please contact me and we can work an arrangement in which you can take part in this honor, memorializing your name in support of Doug's image. It's not a question of whether or not this will happen but if you want to be a part of it. This is an event, just like the one that might have inspired you to become what you are today. Does your participation depend on who will join with you and how you will fight or will you act with honor and faith in the brotherhood of those who fight to free the oppressed? Again, to those who have supported, I thank you and to those who haven't I hope you take advantage of the opportunity in this noble endeavor.
