Hundreds Thank Jake’s Father-in-Law for Service this Veterans Day

A feel good story to end your Veterans Day…

This morning ABC’s Jake Tapper tweeted this simple message to his 30,000 followers:

@jaketapper hey, if you can thank my father-in-law, Vietnam Air Force veteran Tom Brown (@mograndpa), for his service, would mean a lot to him.

Tom Brown received over 600 tweets today, including one from Sen. Claire McCaskill and “The West Wing” actor Josh Malina. Tapper says it meant a lot to him. Brown tweets:

@mograndpa: Read every Veterans Day note sent to me today (600+). Each one different. Each one wonderful. You all made this old coot tear up. Thanks

Let FBDC join the hundreds in thanking Brown, and all our Veterans, for their service.

Also, Tapper and Brown encourage you to support their friend Bob Woodruff and servicemen– donate to www.tweettoremind.org.
