Upon finishing high school at Mounds View I answered the call to serve my country in the US Army. This country had offered me so much, and allowed me to fully live out my potentials. It was my desire and greatest honor to defend her freedom, carrying on the ideal of our nation and to protect the American way of life.
During the seven years while I served in the US Army, I had come across many brave patriots who were willing to give their lives to protect this great nation. They were truly the greatest people alive. They always lead by example, putting others’ interests before their own, and they are willing to die before dishonoring their country. Serving with those great people made me realize that there is no greater honor one can receive than to serve his country in uniform.
It was my time in the military that taught me the concepts of discipline, selfless service, courage, integrity, and hard work. I am now answering another call to serve my country and my state of Minnesota by running for the State House. I will fight to defend our constitutional rights, our freedom and the American way of life. We are the land of the free because we are home of the brave!
