Jon Fleischman Answers The Question
We Asked The Question of Jon Fleischman, founder and publisher of FlashReport.org. Here's his Answer [from Sept. 6, 2007]:
I appreciate your inquiry.
For years I have volunteered here at home as a uniformed Reserve Deputy Sheriff with the Orange County [California] Sheriff's Department.
As I near my 40th birthday, and prepare to welcome my first born son in a few weeks, I will leave voluntary service in the military to others.
We thank Mr. Fleischman for having considered volunteering for military service and for sharing the results of his deliberations with the American people by responding to Our Question. [Although it's off our topic, we note that he mentioned other service to the community.]
We also thank Mr. Fleischman for having the Courage to respond; very few, such as Henry Hager, do any more.
When evaluating Mr. Fleischman's comments on the war or other issues of the day, the American people may take his Answer into account in making their own decisions.
In other words, We Report; You Decide.
