Veteran's Day 2015: Thank You

 

To 21.8 million Veterans:

According to a 2014 article in the US News & World Report there are 21.8 million Veterans currently in the USA.

How do you let 21.8 million people know that you are thankful for them?

My name is Jason. Allow me to introduce my wife Kelsey, and our children; Malia, Zadok, Maclin, and Elias….and that is our black Lab, Ruger. We live in North Idaho and love our life.

We first thank God for everything we have… and then we thank you…all 21.8 million of you, and the millions whose steps you have followed in.

We have a home…because you were willing to walk out your front door and into foreign lands. We have a marriage…because many of you put marriages on hold while serving. We have children…because so many of you missed out on long stretches of your children’s lives. We live free…because you took an oath and backed down to no one to protect freedom. We live…because all of you have sacrificed, many with the ultimate sacrifice.

The majority of veterans that I know, or have met, are somewhat uncomfortable with recognition. As if to say of their service time “I was just doing my job”.

Our family will never meet all 21.8 million of you, and I do not presume to think that you ever question “why” regarding your decision to serve.

But if you do ever ask “why”…

If as a family member of a Veteran, you ever ask “why”…

My name is Jason, this is my wife Kelsey, my daughter Malia and sons Zadok, Maclin and Elias. As a father, a husband, and as a family…Thank you for your service.

Both events will be at the Boundary County Fairgrounds in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Bring the whole family!

Representative

This is truly a first. Never have I been able to say that a candidate for a political office truly represented me as a constituent. Now, don't misread that...not reflected as in agreement in every facet...represented as in I know who the public servant is as a person, and they know me as such.

Four years ago when we purchased our home in Bonners Ferry we needed some electrical work done. We realized that we needed professional help after I cut into a live 220 line (sparks, a cloud of smoke, smell of burning chest hair, a singed pair of wire cutters and a understandably frightened wife).  

As an electrician, Sage Dixon's reputation for quality of work, commitment, and communication preceded him and he proved those qualities in person. 

Over the years our relationship has developed from contractor, to client (of Smalltown Design), to friend.  

In a political arena some may say that because Sage is a friend and a client that my opinion of him would be biased...common sense says, it means I know him.

Sage is the Republican candidate for the Idaho House, District 1-B (covers most of Boundary and Bonner counties). This week Sage and his wife Veronica have a booth at the Bonner County Fair, stop by and get to know them first hand.

In November of this year, in the General Election, consider voting for Sage.

Personally, as a man of faith, a husband, a father, an employee, a business owner, living in North Idaho, I will be voting for Sage. Because Sage personally understands, and will represent me in every one of those roles.
