Just got an email from votevets asking for help for a fellow vet....
Dear VoteVets.org Supporter-

I need to tell you about my friend Patrick Murphy.

On September 12th 2001, Patrick Murphy voluntarily walked into his Commander's office at West Point and volunteered to join a combat unit. Within eight months he deployed to Bosnia; a year later to Baghdad.

Patrick served in Iraq proudly fighting for us.

Patrick has seen first hand the right and wrong way to engage in war. In 2003, Patrick ran convoys up and down Ambush Alley in Baghdad with Humvees that were missing doors. Because of the lack of armor, nineteen men in his unit never returned home.

This tale compelled Patrick to run for the United States Congress. We need Veterans like Patrick in Washington.

Recently, Patrick's opponent, Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick decided to publicly question Patrick's military service. For a sitting Congressman who has never worn the uniform to employ such underhanded tactics is shameful.

This is just the type of attack that VoteVets.org was created to fight against. Patrick needs your help.

Join VoteVets.org in supporting Patrick by making a contribution of $50, $100 or $200 today.

Thank you for supporting America's 21st Century Patriots,

Jeremy Broussard
Iraq War Veteran
Co-Founder and President VoteVets.org

P.S. Support Patrick's commitment to our county- please give $50, $100 or $200 today.

Paid for by VoteVets.org PAC, http://www.votevets.org / not authorized by any candidate or candidate's committee.
