AND ANYTHING DEFENSE

DON'T GIVE IN TO THE OLD MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

I have been unable to find an email address of Mr. Kirk. I will keep serarching, In the meantime I am writing you in hopes you can get the message to Mark Kirk

My father was part of the 101st Airborne that was rescued by Gen. Patton. My stepfather was injured in WW II and was a career milittary. My father-in-law served in the Pacific in WWII. I had four uncles who served in the military during WWII ,one was a piloit that was a prisoner of War. I had friends who served in Viet Nam. My wife who is a teacher has had former students killed in the current war situations.

I actually was in the army reserve like Mr. Kirk and I would never try to compare myself to people who actually served in combat duty. That is like trying to compare yourself to heroeswhen you are not even desrving to be in that category.

The fact that Mark Kirk lied about his combat military record is the most disgusting, disrespectful, and lowlife thing I can possibley imagine. How a person of that character can possiblly be a leader of this country is unbelieveable.

Mark Kirk should be totally ashamed of himself. I hope his mother and father are proud of him, because I am certainly not.

In my opinion, his lieing about his record could be one of the lowest things a person coulld possibly do. I just cannot imagine how people could vote for a person with absolutely no intergrity or character like Mark Kirk.

If you could please forward to this to the lowlife know as Mark Kirk
