President Reagan Campaign

 

It was my honor to work in the Reagan campaign's in the 1980s they were a lot of work and a lot of fun. We believed in his vision of America. I had the opportunity to meet him on the campaign trail here in the Midwest, at a Presidential debate, later at a Landon Lecture, and also at the White House. He was one of those people who you meet in life and will never forget. A true man of conviction.
 
I was sent Inaugural tickets for his second inaugural, however there was no way I could ever go. I passed those tickets along to my Uncle who used them and attended the inaugural. In his life he had the honor of serving in both the Army and Navy, the inaugural was a true highlight for him. He passed away later that year and I was so glad I passed those tickets along. Regardless of your politics please take time to watch the attached video of some of his comments.
