I have come to this incredible opportunity to lead the Committee to Support and Defend as a prior service enlisted member, a line officer, and a protestant chaplain. It has been one of my greatest honors to serve in the US Air Force. After a small gap in military service, my family and I were in full-time ministry overseas and in country, we returned back on active duty because I love serving in the military and we as a family love military families! I love my Lord Jesus Christ, I love our country, and I love our flag full stop. One of my hopes and dreams was to finish my military career and retire. I was non-voluntarily discharged by the Air Force in the Purge soon after the vaccine mandates. This mostly applies to those of us who have strongly held religious beliefs. This is what is happening in our military by the hundreds of thousands.
