Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Ian Moret, US Army - Served in the Iraq War
Hometown: Excelsior, MN
(Submitted August 25, 2008 by Kenyon Laing)

Not only is this my first year able to vote, but by doing so I’ll be honoring a close friend and wonderful man who is currently serving his second tour of duty in Iraq. For the past four years Ian has put everything aside, including his politics, in order to answer what he felt was the call of duty. The sacrifices he makes each day, and the love he has for his country, are astounding. Because he has been willing to share his experiences with us, his friends and family, I believe we have each gained some insight and perspective come election time. It is my hope that my vote will both honor his selflessness and help bring him home safely.

I’d like to take a moment to thank everyone serving and extend a little compassion to anyone missing a loved one in the military.
