When I get out of the Army – sooner or later – I plan to definitely seek public office. There is so much going on in this country that frustrates me and I want to be a part of the solution, beginning at the local level. So, where do I and other likeminded troops go for tips to prepare for public office? Well, former Soldier Phil Van Treuren has published a post detailing how the Army helped him in his campaign for public office. Phil was recently elected to the City Council in Amherst, OH. He maintains that “you donâ€™t have to be former military to use them in your own campaign . . . just be willing to work hard and take pride in everything you do.”
