Local Newspapers Refuse to Cover Story about Ypsilanti Soldier

Both the Ann Arbor News and the Ypsilanti Courier refused to carry a story about local doctor and soldier (and my wife) Maggie Brandt and how she was featured in a billboard campaign this summer for the U.S. Army Reserve. Maggie was featured in billboards throughout southeast Michigan in an advertising campaign the Army called “Hometown Heroes”. Hometown Heroes was also the theme of this years Ypsilanti 4th of July parade but for some reason the local news didn’t see this as newsworthy. Thankfully the Detroit Free Press did, and they ran the story on August 6th. You can read the story here.
