“Congratulations to Sgt. Jason Manella on this impressive achievement. He represents the best and brightest among us, and overcame serious setbacks to win this grueling competition. Sgt. Manella’s service and success can be an inspiration to all us, and I am honored to represent him in the U.S. Congress,” said Rep. Swalwell.

First, SFC Manella, thank you for your service to our Great Country! Please know you and others serving in the military (and first responders here at home) are prayed for regularly at RCS and other places. Second, CONGRATULATIONS on your selection! As Representative Swalwell states your "... service and success can be an inspiration to all us." Thank you for modeling a life that can be celebrated for all of the right reasons! Bruce D. Johnson, Superintendent Redwood Christian Schools
