Candidate Letter: Smith for Common Pleas Judge

Cumberland County Sentinel - 05-19


As the Primary Election approaches, I can’t help but think of Memorial Day following it. While deployed to Iraq in 2009, there was an ambush that took the life of a soldier. As the Judge Advocate, I participated in the after-action investigation. The details are still vivid in my mind: after the soldier was gravely wounded, his teammates protected him and returned fire, especially a young M249 gunner from Philadelphia.
