“Tonight I Don’t Want Your Money…”

By Greg L | 26 September 2006 | 50th HOD District | 4 Comments

I just got back from tonight’s candidate event in Manassas, and heard one of the more surprising statements I’ve ever heard coming from Jackson Miller. What candidate EVER says he will not accept a campaign contribution?

PFC Colin Wolfe was laid to rest in Arlington on September 11th, 2006. He joined the United States Marine Corps inspired by the need our country obviously had for Americans to step up and protect all that we hold dear following the attacks of 9/11/01. His story is a true inspiration of selfless service and dedication, and a bitter tragedy for all of Manassas. Tonight, Colin’s father thook the opportunity to thank Susan Allen for all of the support that she and Senator George Allen gave to the Wolfe family in a deeply moving way that brought more than a few tears.

The Manassas Journal-Messenger has a story about this man’s funeral here.

After several the campaigns for several candidates spoke, Jackson Miller had an opportunity to address the crowd, and told everyone that instead of writing a check to his campaign, they should write a check to Colin Wolfe’s memorial fund which supports the GMU performing arts center. Contributions can be made by visitingthe Community Performing Arts Center website.

    Greg:

    There is a link on the manassasdance.org website on the lower right for making donations to the performing arts center. My family counts the Wolfe family among our dearest friends and we mourn the passing of PFC Wolfe. Both Sarah and I consider his memorial service the single most moving event of our adult life. I’m afraid I owe him and all other service members a debt I can’t repay and I hope that your readers will, wether they agree with the performing arts center or not, make a donation in his memory.

    Regards,

    Andy Harrover

    Greg,

    Not to split hairs, because the spirit of your post is correct. I believe that PFC Wolfe was 19, and therefore enlisted last year. I also believe that he was buried at Arlington.

    SemperFi, I believe you’re correct. Tonight was the first time I heard any details about this and I was a little distracted by a four year old who had a hankerin for another cookie at the time. I’ll correct the post.

    Thanks for helping keep the record accurate.

    Jackson was classy last night. I think this goes to show how Jackson really is.

    Everyone was moved by Mr Wolfe and what he had to say. I am so sorry for their loss, but you could tell that Mr Wolfe was very proud of his son and his service to America.

    I would like to say I am proud of him as well. Even though I did not know PFC Wolfe I am grateful to him and all of our troops for their bravery and sacrifice.

    God Bless the Wolfe family and every family with a loved one serving our country.
