OK, so here is the good news. Remember I wrote recently about the 10 living Chiefs of Staff and that there were two (2) who had not signed.
Well, one of the two apparently realized the train is getting ready to leave the station and decided to hop on-board. lol! :)
General Carl Vuono, who served as the 31st Chief of Staff of the Army 1987-1991 has endorsed the petition. It was under his watch that the SAMC was enacted.
It took five (5) attempts before he finally endorsed the petition but finally it arrived in today's mail.


Here is his bio:

Here is his endorsement:

We now have the endorsements of the 29th, 30th, 31st, 32nd, and 35th Chiefs of Staff of the Army! Whew! :-bd
Still can't figure out why it took the General so long to act on our petition campaign but he finally did and I guess that is all that really matters.
That now only leaves one (1) hold-out. :-?

Thanks,

Dave

Dave,

All I can say is WOWZA. I would certainly think that the Obama administration would be mighty impressed with the star power that is coming out in this petition. Like I said..YOU ARE THE MAN!! Who knows you might get Colin Powell after all!!

Dave ... did you mention to him my name and suggest he take my advice again??? Maybe THAT did the trick!!! LOL!!! :lol:

GREAT JOB! I have always liked Vuono (some don't but I do) and this signature restores my faith in the man I knew and served under.

Richard!

I appreciate your compliment. Maybe he just got tired of me bugging him, but I also wrote my thoughts under the question you posed in the topic about generals talking between each other. I think it was on one of the earlier post I answered today.
I will say if you click on the petition homepage and look to the right side at the VIP list it is pretty amazing. Guess I am tooting my own horn, but it is impressive.

Thanks again,

Dave

If anyone has earned the right to toot their own horn, it's you Dave. Boy, you've done a fantastic job.

Sharon:


Thanks! Yes, there are a lot of stars on the petition. Actually, I could probably brag that we have more stars on the petition than any U.S. military installation; except of course at the Pentagon.
lol!

Thanks,

Dave
