I am a Christian, a husband, a father and a combat veteran. I joined the military at 17 years old, I saw our country being attacked on 9/11 and felt called to do something; to serve. I deployed to Iraq with B. Bttry. 5/113 Field Artillery from 2005-2006, where I completed over 100 combat missions as turret gunner. I returned to continue my service to my community as a police officer with the Town of Nags Head and the City of Raleigh. I married my beautiful wife, Jessica, in 2009 and together we are raising our four wonderful children. We are raising our children to be focused on God and service to others. In the current political climate, we find our American values of Faith, Family and Freedom, under assault. We 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.” I can not stand by and do nothing. As with 9/11, I feel a calling to take action; to serve.
I am the only candidate who has a documented history of putting my beliefs into action, carrying them into hostile territory and standing in the gap. When conflict arises, we do not need 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; I will do this. I will defend Individual Liberties against the threat of collectivism and growing government authority. For us to remain free, the People must remain sovereign.
