We are the lucky ones. Our community is blessed to have an individual like Pat Hammon who wishes to serve, guide and administer our endangered county. In 1968, Pat and I spent some of our youth and energy in South Vietnam in uniform. At that time, she served as an emergency room nurse in a combat zone and became infected with the ideals of making the world a better place to live. Now, all these years later, she and I are still in uniform, as officers of the local VFW, and she still has that infection — to make Eagle County a better place. With her strong experiences, her level-headed intelligence, and her dedicated leadership, yes, I’ll vote for her for Eagle County commissioner, and we’ll be the lucky ones.
Minturn post commander, VFW 10721
