Trump Team Reaches Out to Marine Vet Who Is 'Out of Ammo'
Last week, I received this email from Rennae:
"Larry Wayne Lindsey is from Colorado. He has been a staunch supporter of President-elect Donald Trump, who had a big rally on the state capital steps in Colorado, where Larry did security.
"Larry is a Marine veteran who served with honor. He has also been battling cancer for about three years. Three days ago, they only gave him the night to live. I fear he won't get to see the inauguration. I am trying to get through a maze of people to see if we can get a call from President-elect Trump to Larry. It would mean so much to him.
"I never ask for much, but this would be an amazing gift for a man who is a true patriot and an inspiration to so many.
"Thanks, Larry. There is something about the guys named 'Larry.'"
Well, there's something about Marines, too. My dad was a Montford Point Marine. (JACK's NOTE: These were black recruits in WWII were given Marine basic training in Jacksonville, NC before all branches of the services were integrated in 1948 by Pres. Truman). I (Larry Elder) wrote back:
"I sent your message along to a top aide to Mr. Trump. Obviously, I don't know what will happen. But let's give it a shot."
The following day, I received this message from Rennae:
"Thanks so much, Larry. He had a really tough night, but he is a warrior. You are better than the best! I owe you!
"Here is the message," she wrote, "that Larry Lindsey just posted."
It read: "So my charge nurse comes in this morning about 9 a.m. and asks if I feel up to an urgent call. I refused at first but acquiesced at her insistence. It turned out to be PJ Schrantz, President (-elect) Trump's chief of security. It seems President (-elect) Trump, Vice President (-elect Mike) Pence and General (James) Mattis were requesting information about how I am doing.
READ THE REST!
