STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE
This, my friends, is a picture of a Great American Patriot. His name is Mike Coffman. Currently he holds the office of Colorado State Treasurer, but not for long. No, he's not going into the private sector to pursue a more lucrative career; he's rejoining the U.S. Marines and shipping out to Iraq next month. His joining the military is no more important than anyone else joining, but I think when public figures make the decision to drop everything to serve their Nation in a time of crisis, it highlights the importance of serving one's country.
"My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you: Ask what you can do for your country." Watch JFK's inaugural speech again.
I salute this man for his willingness and courage to step up to the plate in service of this Great Nation. Email Mike Coffman and give him your support and good wishes:
