Allen Chesser is a Christian, a husband, a father, a combat veteran and a former candidate for U.S. House of Representatives. Allen joined the military at 17 years old, he saw our country being attacked on 9/11 and felt called to do something; to serve. Allen deployed to Iraq with B. Bttry. 5/113 Field Artillery from 2005-2006, where he completed over 100 combat missions as turret gunner. Allen returned to continue in service to his community as a police officer with the Town of Nags Head and the City of Raleigh. Allen married his wife, Jessica, in 2009 and together they are raising their four wonderful children. The Chessers are raising their children to be focused on God and service to others. In the current political climate, American values of Faith, Family and Freedom, under assault. Americans cannot bury our heads in the sand and hope that “good” prevails. It was Edmund Burke who famously said: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” We can not stand by and do nothing. As with 9/11, we should feel a call to take action; to serve.
Allen has a documented history of putting his beliefs into action, carrying them into hostile territory and standing in the gap. When conflict arises, we can not afford elected officials who cower and fade into the background. We need active, present and vocal leadership to plainly state their position and take a stand, Right is right and wrong is wrong, regardless of what is popular; We must return to this principal and hold our elected officials to the same standard. We will be champions for Individual Liberties against the threat of collectivism and growing government authority. For us to remain free, the People must remain sovereign.
