Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Lance Corporal Michael Rabbers, Marine Corps - Served in Vietnam
Hometown: Richland, Michigan
(Submitted October 31, 2008 by Jan Rabbers)

Michael is my brother and while he was marching in the jungle with an M-16 in his hand, I was marching on Lansing with flowers in my hand.  Today, we both understand we loved our country in different ways and there is no question of our admiration and love for each other.   Our hearts are united as he wages another battle against cancer that may be related to his time "in country."  My vote is dedicated to making sure he gets the health care he deserves.
