Scott Brown beyond the camera, lights

Whenever I see the television ad where Scott Brown drives his pickup truck to visit Medal of Honor recipient Thomas Hudner, I can’t help but think of the late Sergeant Jared Monti.

Brown made a big show of stopping by Hudner’s house to thank him for his valor in the ­Korean War. How big? He brought a film crew with him. That crew captured ­Hudner, in turn, thanking Brown for all he does on behalf of veterans. If it didn’t really have a point, well, it didn’t really matter.
