Vail Daily letter: Vote for Hammon

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.

Peter Thompson

Minturn post commander, VFW 10721
