Jonathan Powers is an Eagle Scout, Iraq War Combat Veteran, Movie Star, public educator and founder of a childrens charity who was running for congress as one of the 2008 Fighting Dems till he was sunk by Jack Davis (a costie vet) who didn't get nominated either.

"Captain Jonathan Powers spent 14 months serving in Iraq throughout 2003 and 2004 with the Army's 1st Armored Division. Capt. Powers' experiences while serving there were at best heartbreaking, as he patrolled neighborhoods in Baghdad and witnessed firsthand the devastation that war brings to a country. In particular, Powers recalled visiting St. Hannah's Orphanage in late 2003 when a nun took him aside and requested that he and other soldiers not return to the orphanage which his unit supported in previous months. The insurgents threatened that caretaker that further visits would lead to the likely massacre of the children. This and many other horrific moments inspired Powers to conceive a program that provides aid and assistance to Iraq's war children with the Vietnam Veterans of America Foundation (VVAF). He joined VVAF in July 2005 as Program Manager for a project that would eventually launch under the name "War Kids Relief" in November 2005..... Powers is a 2000 graduate of John Carroll University with a bachelor's degree in Education."<a href="http://www.veteransforamerica.org/about/staff-bios/jonathan-powers.html" clas
