Here in the 33rd House of Delegates District, we have a candidate who knows about fighting for what you believe in, Mike Turner. This American veteran has been standing strong for America his whole life. His fellow veterans have recognized his smarts, his wisdom and his service, and are answering his call to service with service of their own.
On the 6th anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, they endorsed Mike for Delegate.
Friends:Please, take the time to support Mike Turner today. With all our help, his call to service will be answered for all of us.
On this, the sixth anniversary of the start of the war in Iraq, we are joining together to endorse a local candidate - a veteran - who has earned our trust and our respect and deserves your vote in November. Retired Air Force Colonel Mike Turner is the Democratic candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates from the 33rd District.
Since March 20th, 2003, over 4,000 men and women in uniform have lost their lives in Iraq. Over 30,000 more have been wounded, many of them egregiously. Their lives and the lives of their families have been forever altered by their great sacrifice.
As we pause today to reflect on the history of this conflict, we are drawn naturally to consider the nature of the public discourse which led us into this war. America's men and women in uniform ask little of their civilian leadership. They ask that they and their families be taken care of in war's aftermath, and they ask that their elected leaders be guided in their decisions by the same honesty, integrity, and sense of obligation that guided our heroes in the course of serving our nation.
Mike Turner has lived by that code for his entire life. As a helicopter pilot flying air rescue missions in Alaska, a fighter pilot flying over Northern Iraq, a nonprofit leader in the Red Cross helping disaster victims, or as an advocate for wounded warriors, Mike has always strived to meet the highest standards of public service. He will be a strong voice for veterans in Virginia's House of Delegates working hard to ensure that Virginia's veterans are provided with the tools and resources necessary to build successful lives and careers when they return home.
And we know that Mike will never forget who he works for-you, his family, his neighbors, his friends, his community. Mike is a proven leader with a track record of problem solving. He will bring new ideas to Richmond and fight for pragmatic solutions to the challenges we face across the Commonwealth.
Please join us today in helping to elect Mike Turner to the House of Delegates.
