|Early Oct. 2004--"This is the epicenter of battleground
Ohio," stated Bob Evans, a veteran and a volunteer from Palmdale,
California, on a break outside
Democrats' Columbus, Ohio field office, located in the United
Steelworkers union hall at 2182 Groveport Road. Evans started his
involvement in the campaign by going to the Kerry campaign's
website. "I knew I wanted to do something," he said. When
the Swift Boat ads came out, Evans wanted to be visible so he
downloaded a bumpersticker. He talked to other veterans in the
community. On the website he signed up as a Kerry
Traveller. Then call came that he was to report to Columbus on
September 22; he arrived a few days early.
