Today, Senator Martha McSally delivered a message during the third day of the Republican National Convention, which focuses on her background of serving in the Air Force and how she’s taken that same fighting spirit to her new battlefield in Congress to protect our freedoms, the Constitution, and our future.
“Hi everyone, I’m Senator Martha McSally.
I am proud to be joining you today all the way from the great state of Arizona.
I’ve been a fighter my whole life.
When I joined the military, I was told I couldn’t be a fighter pilot just because I was a woman. So that’s exactly what I dreamed to become.
I broke through the barriers and became the first U.S. woman to ever fly a fighter jet in combat and the first woman to command a fighter squadron in combat. I deployed to the Middle East and Afghanistan six times, flying the mighty A-10 Warthog.
It was the honor of my life to serve my country in uniform.
While my uniform looks different now and my new battlefield is Washington DC, my mission remains the same: I am fighting every day for our freedoms, Constitution, and future.
Together with our great president and vice president, I am working to keep our communities safe, restore a healthy economy, hold China accountable, and preserve our conservative values to keep America great.
But we can’t do it without you. We must be united and give it our all to win this battle for our country.
We must re-elect Donald Trump and Mike Pence. And we must keep the Senate out of the hands of Chuck Schumer and the radical liberal politicians who would destroy the very foundation of our republic.
Together, I know we can win and usher in the Great American Comeback.
Thank you for your support.
God bless you, and God bless the United States of America.”
