To The Daily Sun,
I read with great sadness of the passing of Bob Kingsbury, a true patriot and gentleman who loved his country. I had the great pleasure and honor of meeting Mr. Kingsbury at several rallies and meetings over the past two years. He stood out to me as a very patriotic gentleman who was proud to have served his country. At a time when I was researching my father's service in the army in WWII and tracing his footsteps through the European theater of operations, Mr. Kingsbury was a wealth of information and was more than patient and gracious with his time.
My father, too, fought at the Battle of the Bulge. Mr. Kingsbury was kind enough to relate some information on that battle to me as well as give me some very informative publications he had written on the subject. His thoughts and insight into that great Battle gave me a much better picture of what my Father and so many other brave young men had endured.
To read that Rep. David Huot did not think Mr. Kingsbury's views made him a candidate to serve the public was really offensive to me. We need more people like Bob Kingsbury! He was the epitome of a true American patriot and a part of that greatest generation the likes of which I fear we may never see again. It might interest Rep. Huot to know that Bob Kingsbury's views are the views many Americans share, myself included. His passing is a great loss and he will be greatly missed by me and many others at future rallies and meetings.
