Although a beautiful day outside, approximately 150 people gathered inside the Commissioners Auditorium in Pontiac to listen to Rocky's presentation.  No photos were allowed to be taken.
Rocky is an excellent speaker (thankfully, he doesn't use a teleprompter) and he gave us a brief history on how we got to where we are now, starting with the Gulf War under Bush 1. A series of videos and still photos followed, some of them very graphic, some of them shocking, so much so that my mouth dropped open, as in Oh My God.  Everything he showed us or told us about was declassified and can be found on Open Secrets. He had two soldiers in the audience that had served with him overseas and they contributed not only to the presentation, but also gave big Kudos to Rocky for his leadership, courage and abilities.

There was a reporter in the audience from "Reporting Michigan" who took notes (I didn't, shame on me), but here is his report Please note on this article that Rocky is a Major and not Captain.  Surely an honest mistake on the author's part.

I am grateful to Rocky that he was willing to share his experience with us and it confirmed what kind of person he is, the kind that loves his country and that we need to represent us. Rocky is running for Congress, 9th district in Michigan, against Gary Peters who refuses to listen to his constituents.
