#WeThePeople in the Balcony: Jeff Edelman

Jeff Edelman is Congressman Mike Coffman’s (R-CO) State of the Union guest.  Mr. Edelman’s son, Ethan, tragically committed suicide last year on Veterans’ Day. Ethan served honorably for three years in the United States Army, including a combat tour in Afghanistan as a first class Infantryman.  He suffered from PTSD and, like many vets, he failed to receive the necessary treatment.
