Dear President Obama,

I am so proud of the way you have conducted yourself over the course of your adult career. My name is Chiles E. (Chuck) Townsend. DOB: 12/02/1954.My draft # in 1972 was 33. I was poor, a High School dropout, and I was certain I was going to die in the rice patties of Vietnam. I protested that war on several occasions. I was lucky.President Nixon stopped the draft just before his election in 72. Just before I turned 18. I am now ready and willing to wipe ISIL/ISIS OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH SO THAT THEY NEVER THREATEN MY 2 GRANDCHILDREN. Ages 2&3. I also have 3 children and I am ready to take all necessary steps to eliminate this existential threat. Please choose me to fight these radical, immoral worthless, stupid idiots. I have survived prostate cancer, radical prostatectomy, testicular removal and radiation. The least I can do is give my my life to this cause. Otherwise, I'm not convinced my children and Grandchildren will be safe. BTW. I HAVE PRACTICED LAW FOR 29 years after graduating from The University of Oklahoma.

Yours very sincerely,


Chile E. Townsend
