Veterans in Congress are able to promote pro-Veteran Issues
We’re headed toward the big Independence Day holiday weekend. It’s a time of celebration and reflection upon our ideals of freedom and our nation’s history. Most of all, we celebrate our heritage of liberty – which would not exist if not for the sacrifices of America’s Veterans.
When it comes to elections and politics, it is important for Veterans to have a voice at the highest levels of government, including in Congress. Fortunately, there are almost 100 Veterans serving in Congress, including:
Senators Mike Enzi of Wyoming (Air Force), Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma (Army), Tom Cotton of Arkansas (Army), Martha McSally of Arizona (Air Force), and Rick Scott of Florida (Navy), and Congressmen Dan Crenshaw of Texas (Navy), Mike Gallagher of Wisconsin (Marine Corps), Louie Gohmert of Texas (Army), Greg Pence of Indiana (Marine Corps), Denver Riggleman of Virginia (Air Force), and many more.
These Congressmen and Senators are in a position to promote – and fight for – the interests of America’s Veterans.
As we celebrate America, let us always remember to Stand Up for Veterans and to honor those who’ve made our freedoms possible. From now through November, CAV will be conducting a grassroots outreach effort to stand up for Veterans’ issues via videos, social media, phone calls, mailings, text messages, email alerts, and literature distribution.
