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.
