On April 26th there will be an event at the Virginia War Memorial with the Vietnamese community. We will be remembering the fall of Saigon and the sacrifices of the many Marines, Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and our patriots who fought for the Republic of South Vietnam. It will be an emotional day for sure.
However, while I honor, I will also remember how blessed we were by God’s grace, 40 years ago, to have made it to the land of freedom and opportunity. I see my parents’ faces light up with pride when they talk about how I am running for public office. Enduring sacrifice, heartache, and struggle went into building the young man who seeks to serve the very community which provided us our start in America.
To each and every single one of you, good or bad, THANK YOU for being a part of this journey. Thank you for welcoming our Phamily 40 years ago and helping us.
It is now my turn to return the favor and “reignite the promise of America!”
