Today we drove 2 hours to Columbus where we had a scheduled press conference at the state house. This link will very succinctly tell the story as three networks covered the event.
following the conference we had a meeting with the Ohio Dept of Veteran Services, Asst Director Mr Espich and Ms Hernandez. We were met very favorably and will follow up latter next month.
Our travels then took us the next 2 hours to Strongsburg where we met John Hohne at his local VFW post. I had the opportunity to speak to a small group there with great support. John also showed us the phenomenal veterans memorial they constructed on the property. What an incredible accomplishment and tribute to so many who have sacrificed so much for our country and the state of Ohio.
Tomorrow: Veterans Memorial, Clinton Ohio, 1pm, flag presentations. 7pm Cleveland Indians Honor and Remember night.
Needs: Please look over my itinerary and if you have contacts in states I am headed to please spread the word.
