Will this Eagle Scout accept a new challenge? (UPDATE)
The President of the American Conservative Student Union and a University of Alabama senior, David Andrew Ferguson, has an impressive resumé. He is an Eagle Scout, a former football player, and, of course, a member of the NRA. Mr. Ferguson displays bravery having once saved a man from drowning and, judging from this photo, he is not afraid of the potential health risks of a poor diet. As the treasurer for the University of Alabama College Republicans, Mr. Ferguson has shown he can be trusted with $, a lesson that may have been passed down to him from his family's business, L-Ferg International, a company that specializes in keeping American business owners wealthy by outsourcing jobs to Asia. This focused, busy young man's political philosophy is "You can change the world one liberal at a time. . . " Yes you can, Mr. Ferguson, yes you can.
I scanned David's profile once and had to read through it again more carefully. After the subsequent viewing I was troubled that this fine, indomitable leader has no intentions of entering our Armed Forces after graduation. I thought, surely this must have been a mistake, strong leaders like Mr. Ferguson are what our country needs to lead our Infantry Units in the War on Terror. I attempted to contact him via E-mail twice and have yet to hear back. Hopefully someone, more compelling than me, can contact him and convince Mr. Ferguson to Be A Man! Enlist! It would be shameful for David to follow through on his intentions of attending law school without at least considering Military Service.
UPDATE: On 12 June, I was able to confirm Mr. Ferguson received my E-mails (Coincidently, this was also the day his profile was updated for it to read he will enter the JAG Corp upon graduation.). He is aware of our concern for him to become a credible conservative leader by entering the Armed Forces and we anxiously await for him to announce his commitment. Until then other Patriots should continue to contact David and alert him that an intention is not the same as a pledge.
