Veteran of The Year

Veteran Army Ranger 
You could have knocked me over with a feather when I saw whothey were talking about…I had no idea…wait
till you see who it is. What a simple but mostsincere and moving acceptance speech. Loved his recommendation
for all our politicos.
Many people may have forgotten about his time in the U.S. Army. He is the son of an Air Force General,
and an accomplished Golden Gloves boxer, and he graduated from Pomona College with a B.S. degree,
and then became a Rhodes Scholar from Oxford University.

He joined the U.S. Army at the prompting of his father. After graduating from Officer Candidate School he
attended and graduated from both Army Airborne and Ranger training in the very top of each class. He
was selected for U. S. Army Special Forces Training but refused so that he could attend pilot training where
he earned his wings, and became an accomplished U.S. Army helicopter (gun ship) pilot, and achieved the
rank of Captain.

He was about to be promoted to the rank of Major, and appointed to teach at West Point when he resigned
his commission from the Army to go into music and acting. You can tell in this video that his time in the
military means a lot to him. I won’t give away who it is. You should just watch.
