Today we honor the legacy of our nation’s flag. The flag we pledge to, protect and defend, lost our lives for, does not come free. I served 12 years in the Navy including a tour in Afghanistan and four deployments to the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe, fighting to defend the Stars and Stripes. After seeing 45 countries across the world, I realized how special and fortunate we are to have our democratic society here in the United States.
So this Flag Day I’m asking you to help us bring integrity back to Washington. Veterans are uniquely positioned this year to help heal the divide in our country, place service first, and accomplish the mission of solving our most pressing issues.
This election is critical for our country to ensure that we are choosing a new generation of leaders ready to carry the flag and unite us all.
