Coolidge, Bell Favor Wamp

Thursday, May 8, 2014
World War II Medal of Honor Recipient Charles Coolidge of Signal Mountain and Retired Four-Star General Burwell B. Bell of Ooltewah on Wednesday endorsed Chattanooga businessman Weston Wamp for Third District Congress.

Mr. Coolidge said, “In the 3rd Congressional District we have the opportunity to begin the trip back to respect. A young man has offered himself to serve us in Congress. In interviewing Weston, it is obvious that he is well prepared to address the issues that matter most and he displays the drive that his youth affords.
 Weston has a will to work hard and will represent us well.”

General Bell, who commanded the United States Army Europe and U.S. Forces Korea, said in a letter to Mr. Wamp, “I am convinced that today’s America is in almost desperate need of new leadership in Washington across all three branches of government. You are the right man with the right clarity of thought to be our next Congressional Representative in a new Washington.”

Mr. Wamp said, “It is a high honor for these two men to associate their good names with my candidacy. Honoring the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have worn the uniform of our Armed Forces will be my first priority as a Member of Congress. It’s because of the leadership of veterans like Sergeant Coolidge and General Bell and that we live in an amazing country. My desire is to carry the legacy of these Third District patriots to Washington and help fix the country they helped make great.”
