URGENT – Help Tim Kennedy!

Updated: June 1, 2009


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 [email protected].  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!

    I am writting in support of Tim Kennedy. I have known Tim for many years prior to the military and I can tell you that Tim is a very talented and skilled individual. Not only is he kind and respectful, Tim will make an excellent role model for the military. Tim can be a marketable icon for the military and with his skills in the ring, I think that he will bring lots of attention and awareness to the military as a whole. Using Tim as a “spokesman” for the military is an excellent “win-win” solution for all parties. Tim has served for his country and all of our freedoms as Americans, so the least that we can do is to allow him the opportunity do what he loves to do, and that is fighting. Respect is priceless. Tim has the respect of many people on the Central Coast and the world for his efforts and courage for fighting for our country. MMA needs to return the respect and give this talented fighter a chance. Good luck Tim and Atascadero welcomes you back someday.
