From an email in my inbox this morning from Nick Palmisciano of Ranger Up:
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Tuesday afternoon I am meeting with National Guard officials who are considering adding Special Forces Operator and top mixed martial arts competitor Tim Kennedy to their elite athlete program. Those of you that know Tim, or even know of him, can attest to the fact that he is certainly deserving of that honor.
The National Guard has two main questions:
1) How many people support Tim Kennedy?
2) Does the National Guard need an MMA team?
I firmly believe that MMA is the only sport that truly tests our resolve to close with and destroy the enemy, and I believe that Tim has more than a few supporters.
I don't think I am alone in feeling that way.
As such, I am asking for your help.
I have created an email account at email GoTimKennedy@gmail.com. I am posting this at 4AM Monday morning. I am going to unfurl the results during our meeting.
Please take a moment to shoot an email to that address and tell the National Guard that you support Tim Kennedy. You have until our meeting Tuesday afternoon (May 2nd) to send one!
Thanks so much for your support!
As Nick stated, anyone who knows Tim, has talked with him, or has even watched him fight knows that he is very deserving of this honor. Not only that, but Tim is one of the best representatives that this sport has. I urge everyone to send an email to the above email address and support Tim, whether you know him, have spoken with him, or are just a fan.
