When I was honorably discharged from the Army, I knew I wanted to continue serving my country. I began fighting for other veterans - to ensure the thanks of a grateful nation didn't pass them by. Then I continued fighting for my fellow citizens - to make this country one we could be proud of.
Now that path has led me towards being a delegate at the Republican National Convention, engaged in a fight for the heart and soul of America. Who will we be, as a nation? Who will we protect? Whose voices will be heard? What line is too far?
Unfortunately, it is a very expensive event to attend. I am ready to cut as many corners as I can - I have some experience roughing it, after all - but the Secret Service forces delegates to stay in the official convention hotel, (which you must pay for) and airfare to Cleveland is escalating rapidly.
I wish I could do all this alone - but as a retired, disabled veteran, I need a little help from you. Any tiny bit helps - even if all you have is a dollar, I promise I will be touched and honored. If we all pull together, I know we can get there - and I will bring your concerns, your fight, to Cleveland - and we will be heard.
