Veterans For Harrell, Kick-Off Tomorrow
VETERANS FOR HARRELL KICK-OFF THEIR WEBSITE ON VETERAN'S DAY, NOVEMBER 11TH
(KILLEEN) - Congressional Candidate Mary Beth Harrell notes that "Veterans Day is a family affair in our home." Her oldest son is a soldier serving on active duty and due to deploy with the 4th Infantry Division to Iraq before Christmas. Her youngest son is also serving on active duty, and Harrell's husband is a retired Army warrant officer.
Harrell states, "I know the sacrifices that our young men and women make everyday to protect our freedom and preserve our way of life. We must make sure that their needs - the needs of our vets - are not forgotten in Washington."
Michael Barton is a proud veteran and patriotic Texan spearheading the group, "Veterans for Harrell" and their website. He is calling on all Veterans to join this group, "she is uniquely qualified to stand up against those in Washington who want to cut programs specifically designed to help veterans." Barton noted "we know we can count on Mary Beth to support the armed services and everyone who has ever served in them."
Barton, a Republican, supports Harrell, a Democrat, because he believes we must "elect leaders who understand our needs and who have the courage and integrity to defend them. Mary Beth Harrell is such a leader."
Barton is hosting a Neighborhood Open House for Harrell at his home in Round Rock on November 12, 2005
Harrell and her family will also participate in the Fort Hood/Killeen Veterans Day parade on November 11, 2005.
