    I AM a Veteran. I’ve seen these signs, and harbor some resentment of them because there is NO WAY that they represent all, or even a majority of Vet’s in Colleyville. They sure never asked me for an endorsement. I RESENT voter manipulation by a candidate.

      Where on those signs does it state ALL VETERANS support this candidate? It says veterans period. It does not state a group of veterans, a collage of veterans. A school of veterans. It says veterans plain and simple. Stop with the ridiculous spinning of absolutely everything.. It’s really getting tiring, and frankly, we are all tired of hearing it. Oh by the way. I love the way that you scratch out the persons name in the Facebook post above. Of course, we all know who it was Nelson. Why would you hide the name huh? Is he afraid to disclose the fact that he is a supporter of you?

        Mr Mogged has chosen to wear a Marine Cap at political events. I confronted him about it since it is probably the most hard earned cap in the military. He says his daughter gave it to him. As a retired Air Force officer, I was given the Cap by several young Marines I supported In Vietnam. My sons asked why I never wore it–my response was I didn’t earn it. I eventually gave it to a newly commissioned Marine officer who now has it on his mantle after wearing it once. Wearing a military uniform item for political purposes is absolutely disgraceful to me. Besides, he wears it in a totally inappropriate manner. I can’t believe one of his most vocal supporters is a former Marine–I’d like to have him meet the Marine veterans who I have shown Mr. Mogged pictures. The Marines have the most admired traditions in the US Armed Forces and Mr. Mogged and his supporters have tread on those. I voted for him before, but I now view him as a blatant opportunist.
