COP on the Hill: Stories from the week of October 13, 2023

Weekly Activities:

 Happy to Help: A buddy of mine at the Grover meeting went out his way to introduce to me an Iraq War vet who has just started lobbying in Congress.  He wants the Defense Dept to award a Purple Heart to all those soldiers who were injured by Agent Orange in Vietnam and the burning oil pits, etc. in Iraq…he is having great difficulty arranging meetings with Congressional staffers.  I gave him some pointers and next week he will go with me on a few of my meetings to see how I do it; AKA I will mentor him…feels good

Florence Nightengale / Personal Time:  A short week, as my fiancé Jean had medium serious foot surgery, needed a driver and serious care the first 24 hours..  it was my first time to be a health care provider/nurse.  Not fun and was interesting.
