Campaign keepsake to be sold for good cause
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.
