Romney is coming not only to meet and greet Missouri citizens, he is also coming to speak w/ Dave MacArthur and his son "Moose". Dave is a small business owner in the area (MacArthur's Bakery) and has been on the Huckabee Show 2x taking and offering questions about small business and what it needs from government to grow/ sustain. While talking w/ Gov. Romney on the Huckabee Show, he asked Romney about benefits for our newest war veterans. Dave told the emotional story of his own 23 year old son, Moose, a Marine who has a brain injury due to wounding in Afghanistan. Moose has been having to "fight" to receive his purple heart, to receive other benefits due him. Gov. Mitt Romney is coming to St. Louis to talk w/ Moose and Dave to see what and how the government can do to honor and give to the veterans what they duly deserve. This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity of St. Louis area folk to see Romney at his most compassionate, Dave as a business man and father, and our to honor and support our young veteran, "Moose" MacArthur.
