Peyton Manning one ups the POTUS again by donating to the families of the 5 service members killed

Peyton Manning is proving to the POTUS what a leader is supposed to do

Peyton Manning is proving to the POTUS what a leader is supposed to do

Peyton Manning went to the families of the five servicemen and met with them while they were grieving the loss of their family members, while the White House would not make a statement. Almost a week later the President of the United States finally issued the flags to be at half staff.  This came after hundreds and thousands of people protested on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, about how the POTUS handled the situation.  I agree with the people, it is a shame that we would not do anything for our fallen PROTECTORS.  Well not only did Peyton Manning step up by visiting the families, he is now going to donate money to the families according to Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee. 

Peyton Manning has agreed to contribute to the fund to help the families of the five service members who were killed in last week’s Chattanooga, Tennessee, shooting, Sen. Bob Corker said Tuesday, according to ESPN. 

Corker (R-Tennessee) mentioned Manning’s efforts in a speech on the Senate floor Tuesday.

“My friend and a great Tennessean, or at least we claim him as that — he lives in Chattanooga for part of the year — Peyton Manning has lent his name to this effort, and my sense is you’re going to see a generous outpouring to ensure that at a base level some of the needs of these families, if not all financially, will be dealt with in an appropriate way,” Corker said in his remarks.
