1st Lt. Travis L. Manion was killed in action on April 27, 2007 in Iraq’s Anbar Province.
Yesterday, his father Thomas Manion, a Republican who recently retired as a colonel in the Marine Reserves, entered the race against antiwar liberal Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Pa.).
Thomas says his son’s death was a wake-up call to step forward and serve.
Jules Crittenden has more on the Manion’s.
May God be with you every step of the way, Thomas.
