Weekly update for May 17
Commissioner Bob Ott Town Hall, meetings with the East Cobb Kiwanis, and greeting the troops at the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport were just some of the events that I attended this week in my continuing outreach to voters in Cobb County. Topping the week was being part of my Marine Corps League Detachment’s recognition of two young men who represent the future of our country. One was a Boy Scout who had attained the rank of Eagle Scout—an accomplishment that only 4% of all Boy Scouts achieve. The second recognition was the awarding of a $2000 scholarship to a high school graduate whose personal story included high academic achievement and countless hours as a volunteer despite the loss of his parents at young age. As I have said many times, veterans continue to serve even after they leave the service. It’s in their DNA.
This coming weekend is Memorial Day when we should take the time to honor the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. I have included under the Articles tab an article that was printed previously in the Marietta Daily Journal. The words are just as timely today. May all our heroes rest in peace and their families take comfort in knowing that the lives of the loved ones for whom they grieve still have meaning.
