One subject not very popular these days I would like to bring to the table. During her service as a Congresswoman, I seeked assistance from Congresswoman Gifford's office.
I was attempting to complete the process of recongition for an 89 year old retired USAF Colonel who happen to be a WWII veteran of Bataan and Corregikdor on the Philippine Islands.
