Rally in Reading, Pennylvania

Rally in Reading, Pennylvania: "There is someone here in this crowd also that knows exactly where I’m coming from and the other Blue Star Moms do also. One of these moms, Nancy Hoffman Hardy (ph), her son Matthew and my son, they’re serving together and in the coming weeks the Hardy’s son David will be deployed to Iraq with the Pennsylvania National Guard. Please join me in thanking Nancy and her family for the sacrifice that they’re making.
Thank you, Nancy."
