Retired Army colonel Fritz Mehrtens and some pals decided to do their part to educate the “middle” on the crises facing the country.
So he did what any other senior citizen would do: He stared a web DoUKnowUSA.org, and he made a YouTube video.
Watch the video. No razzle dazzle. Just a plain spoken, sincere appeal from a career Army officer –he was a tank man– who thinks the country has got to get serious about its issues and soon.
On this Fourth of July it is the perfect reminder of the great reservoir of talent and commitment the country possesses. There are literally millions of Fritzs, and the idea of them taking up cameras and keyboards is very encouraging.
