STATEMENT: Senator-Elect Mark Kelly on Veterans’ Day
On Veterans’ Day, Navy combat veteran and Arizona Senator-elect Mark Kelly released the following statement:
“Thank you to all of our veterans in Arizona, and across the country, for your service and sacrifices for our nation. As a veteran, I know how important it is to not only recognize those sacrifices but to make sure that our veterans receive the benefits and care they earned,” said Sen.-elect Mark Kelly. “I’ll make it my mission to ensure that the federal government serves our veterans with the same respect and honor as our veterans have served us.”
Mark Kelly has prioritized engaging with Arizona’s veterans community, participating in roundtable discussions to talk with Arizona veterans about the issues that matter to them and earning the support of Arizona veterans. Additionally, the campaign launched a television ad in September in which two U.S. Navy veterans who served with Kelly aboard the USS Midway highlighted Kelly’s military background and commitment to public service.
