Campaign keepsake to be sold for good cause

DEAN HUMPHREY/The Daily Sentinel—Retired Army Green Beret Gregory Green poses for a picture with Ashley and Nicole Troester after he had Republican vice-presidential candidate Paul Ryan sign the Denver Broncos jersey during Ryan’s appearance at Colorado Mesa University on Monday. Green plans to have GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney sign it, also, and will then auction it to raise money for the families of two Navy SEALs who were recently killed in Libya.

Gregory Green, a retired Green Beret from Fruita, left Brownson Arena on Monday with an orange Denver Broncos jersey bearing the name “Romney,” the number 12 and Paul Ryan’s autograph.

Green, who retired as a sergeant first class, plans to take the jersey to Red Rocks Amphitheater today in hopes of getting a signature from Gov. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential nominee. He then hopes to auction the jersey off to raise money for the Special Operations Warrior Foundation for the children of two Navy SEALS killed earlier this month in Benghazi, Libya.

“They had children” whose loss has largely been ignored in the political tumult that ensued after the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and his bodyguards, Green said.
