Iraqi Vets Running for Congress

"We must all hang together or assuredly we shall all hang separately." Benjamin Franklin

Our Troops and Vets never cease to amaze me! And the following is yet another example of their selfless service to our country:
Twelve U.S. military veterans have joined together to run for Congress in 2008 on a platform of Victory in Iraq and in the War on Terror. On their website Iraqivetsforcongress.com they state:

Whether Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine, we all shared a common goal in Iraq: victory. As Republican candidates for Congress we share a vision for America’s future, her security, and that of future generations. We are unified in our commitment to relieve the Democrats of their command of Congress.

Voters want to restore leadership and honor back to Washington. Who better to accomplish that mission than our generation of warriors?

All veterans whose service to the United States brought them first to Iraq and now to a run for the House as pro-victory Republicans, are welcome to become part of Iraq Veterans For Congress.

United we are capable of sending to Congress a squad-size element of Iraq vets to keep us on offense in the War on Terror and counter calls for defeat.

In short, unification of all Republican Iraq Veterans will be a powerful force multiplier. By joining forces we will generate crucial nationwide grassroots support while sharing ideas and strategies.

Following are the names and districts the twelve candidates are running in:
