Keep your eyes open for a non-partisan group called Vets for Freedom; they’re doing good work in gathering support for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the founders, and its executive director, is an impressive young fellow who I talked to last week named Pete Hegseth, a former first lieutenant with the 101st airborne in Iraq.
A Bronze Star winner, and a Princeton graduate, Pete Hegseth follows in a classic tradition, too often ignored in media portrayals of American soldiers: the warrior as intellectual. He can fight, he can think, he can plan. General David Petraeous is such an example as a flag officer.
Put Vets for Freedom in Google in your computer and take a look at their website and related stories. They’re worth of support.
