Why Tom Manion is running for Congress

Retired Marine Col. Tom Manion, who lost his son Travis in Iraq, explains why he is running for Congress in a moving video posted at his campaign Web site.

Following the tremendous response received from the trailer of "Letters from Travis," Part 1 of "Letters from Travis" was released Friday, according to the Tom Manion for Congress Campaign.

"Letters from Travis," a four-part video series, tells the uniquely-American story of Tom and Travis Manion, and how Travis Manion's death in Iraq was the inspiration for Tom to run for Congress in Pennsylvania's 8th Congressional District.

I don't live in the 8th Congressional District, but Tom Manion is the kind of person this country needs in Congress.
