Tommy Hanson, Republican candidate for 5th Congressional District
First of all, I want to let you know my Grandfather fought in WWI in France and was wounded as a result fighting against the Germans. He was mustard gassed; subsequently he survived but died a few years later as a result of his injury. I never met my Grandfather; but I understand he was a wonderful person. Later, my father was a Naval Aviator in WWII which was the single most significant experience he had in his life. To this day, I thank God my father survived. Later on, my father worked for The Veterans Administration and received many rewards. Personally, my time came during the VietNam; when my draft number was pulled #320; so I was not drafted.
To say the least, I consider it an honor to become Congressman for the 5th Congressional District; because I want to pay back those who have served our country. I’m running as the Republican Candidate; because I am a Christian; and I believe the only way America will survive hereon is through an Executive Branch, Congress and The Senate all being Republican. Once elected, I will be certain to work with you, President Trump, Congress and the Senate to make things right for all who have served. I believe our President is doing the best he can to accomplish this objective.
I appreciate your invitation to inform you of my intentions. I am honored you invited me to address your concerns and look forward to working with the COALITION OF VETERANS ORGANIZATIONS.
