Sorry for the delay but I have been out of the Country since last Thursday.
I will be away a while yet to come, not sure when I will return.
In any case, my wife keeps me advised of petitions coming in.
Today, she sent this transciption of the 'letter of endorsement'
from Senator Bob Dole.
Although I am sure you all know who he is, I will post his a link to his biography anyway.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Dole
I had mentioned waiting for an important endorsement some time ago, and although I knew it was coming, I did not realize it would take this long.
In any case, he very eloquently
laid out the case for Audie in his endorsement and as you all know Senator Dole is a WWII veteran, very well respected
on both sides of the political aisle and is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom
himself, having received it from President Clinton
When I am able I will place an actual scan of the letter of the Page for all to view.
Here is a transcript of`the 'letter of endorsement.' "Thank you for your letter regarding your efforts to posthumously award Audie Murphy the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Audie was a remarkable figure in our nation's history, and his countless military honors reflect his significant contributions during World War II.
Equally as important, Audie helped change our nation's attitudes toward post traumatic stress disorder suffered by our men and women in uniform. He was a pioneer in raising awareness of an illness then only known as "battle fatigue," and and as a result our nation finally began to recognize the need for early diagnosis and treatment.
I fully support your campaign to posthumously award Audie Murphy the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This honor would be well-deserved for this true American hero."
God Bless America!
Keep your fingers crossed everyone, and perhaps, ........just maybe, this might happen yet!
