Aukes displays integrity

In Marine Corps boot camp drill instructors instill 14 leadership traits within every newly graduating Marine. Of the 14 leadership traits one stands out as being most important, that is integrity. The definition of integrity to all Marines means the following: that you are honest and truthful in what you say or do. You put honesty, sense of duty, and sound moral principles above all else.

Having been a Marine, served two tours of duty as a Marine Corps Drill Instructor, and now a retired Marine I fully understand the definition of integrity. That is why I support Cory Aukes for Hubbard County Sheriff. Mr. Aukes's integrity is impeccable and his ability to display the necessary leadership within his department will be unmatched. I would ask all residents of Hubbard County especially my fellow "Band of Brothers" to consider voting Aukes for our Hubbard County Sheriff.

I thank all service members both past and present for your service, and a special thanks to those serving overseas and abroad. It is what you do that provides us the freedom of speech and tranquility for all. Thank You.
