What is the track record for veterans when it comes to voting in elections? Well, veterans vote actually in a little bit lower rate than you would expect and a lot lower rate than they should, because they know what it means to sacrifice. They know what it means to serve. They have already had an oath to the constitution, and so those are the people we wants in office and those are the people that I think that we really should target and help get out. The vote Ainsley tell us what happened in two thousand and six. I know you were in Iraq and lost your leg. Tell us what happened. Yeah serves company commanders of a tank company west of Baghdad in a place called Ramadi and got hit by a room.
