I was bleeding out. The medics called a bunch of Sailors and Marines who didn’t know me to give blood. And they saved my life.
They didn’t ask if I was black, white, male, female, it didn’t matter. The only thing that mattered was that I was an American.
Because of them, I’ve been able to compete in triathlons, teach at West Point and be a father to my three kids.
Now I am running for United States Senate because I am not done fighting for my country or paying back the sacrifices those men and women made for me.
I’m Daniel Gade and I approve this message.
