Thanks to the students at Anamosa High School for their Veterans Day program. I’ve missed very few and each has been an inspiring experience. Thank you.
Thinking about this celebration, stories of heroism and “just doing my job” come to mind. A wonderful role model is my father-in-law, Bob Davis. His story (that he won’t tell) is of D-Day, Omaha Beach, capture, a knife, escape, a Purple Heart, and two Bronze Stars. Thank you, Bob.
Another example is the men and women Bob and I met on the Honor Flight a year ago. Thanks to each of you.
Today, I can’t get past the four who died at Benghazi, Libya. There have been conflicting stories, but little information from the administration because they are “investigating and don’t want to jump to conclusions.” Now, after all the speeches and campaigning, will we finally hear truth from the “most open and transparent administration in history?” Heard of “Fast and furious?”
I’m confident the president will soon release:
l Who countermanded his immediate order to do “everything possible to help the Americans at Benghazi?”
l Who decided to reduce security after attacks in the spring?
l Who decided to blame an anti-Muslim film and non-existent protest for two weeks?
l Who ignored the security requests from Ambassador Stevens?
l Who ordered “stand down” to (Navy SEAL) Tyrone Woods?
A hearty thanks to all veterans. I pray for those currently serving that a call for help will not be forwarded to an “empty chair.”
