This comes to us from a press release:
Veterans Rally To Support Habeeb for DelegateTo provide some serious bona fides to this announcement, here is a list of veterans who have joined the effort to get Habeeb elected next month:
Salem – In a statement released from his headquarters today, Greg Habeeb, Republican candidate for the Eighth House of Delegates District, announced the creation of the “Veterans for Greg Habeeb” coalition.
“I am humbled and honored to have the support of so many brave men and women who have served our great nation,” said Habeeb. “We owe all veterans a debt of gratitude that words can not repay.”
The coalition includes members from almost every major conflict of the last half-century.
"It is not a coincidence that we chose this day to cast our endorsement for Greg Habeeb. Like those who gave so dearly on December 7, 1941, we veterans have always been willing to stand up and defend this nation, fight tyranny and free the oppressed,” said Dr. Garrett Thompson, Captain, U.S. Army. “We understand that to preserve the freedoms we and our brothers and sisters have fought to establish, we need leaders in Richmond and Washington who will fight for more freedom, less government and greater opportunities for all citizens. We know Greg is a leader who will carry on the fight for freedom in Richmond and will honor all veterans in doing so."
“Through my work with the Military Family Support Center, I've seen up close and personal the sacrifices made by our military men and women and their families,” Habeeb added. “I will be a leader in working with local, state and federal organizations, governmental and private, to ensure that we honor these heroes by supporting them in every way possible.”
Touching all the bases. Good timing too.
