"One specific example comes to mind. In 2008 when I was still a businessman and candidate, my office received a letter from a daughter of a WWII veteran who had served as a corpsman during the battle of Iwo Jima. Her father had never received the medals he had earned during a day of fierce combat, and their family had for years not been able to find anyone to help. I resolved that if I became a Congressman, I would do all I could to help that veteran and others like him. I'm pleased to say that my staff went to work shortly after I took office, and in 2009 we held an official ceremony where I presented this American hero with the medals he deserved."
