ATLANTA – On Tuesday, August 2, Herschel Walker hosted a veterans roundtable in Woodstock followed by a veterans town hall in Kennesaw.
“My heart has always been with our military and our veterans,” said Herschel Walker. “I’ve seen a lot of young men and women who have given so much to our country. I know that a lot of our veterans are struggling with mental health and I want to be a champion of mental health. We need to work to end the stigma around mental health — something I’ve dealt with for many years. You need to know that it is ok to ask for help, there’s no shame in that.
“People in Washington need to be listening to our veterans about what they need and how we can help them. Unfortunately, our veterans are talking, but Joe Biden and Senator Warnock clearly aren’t listening. Warnock has done more for Joe Biden than for Georgia’s veterans, and they are struggling. After they’ve given everything for our freedom and liberties, at the very least, they need an advocate in the U.S. Senate. I will always stand in the balance for them.”
At the roundtable, numerous veterans voiced their support of Herschel and his campaign for the U.S. Senate. They also addressed the issues they are currently seeing with Biden and Warnock at the
“Herschel cares about veterans and I know he’ll always have their backs,” said State Senator Bruce Thompson, Candidate for Labor Commissioner and Retired E-4 Specialist with the U.S Army.
“We need help with homeless veterans, the government doing the job to help them,” said Captain Jim Lindenmeyer, Ret., U.S. Army. “Inflation is through the roof and our veterans are hurting. We got people in Washington who aren’t delivering for them and that needs to change. The VA needs to be reformed to actually serve those who served this country.”
“Right now, we have an administration that is pushing a woke agenda,” Sergent Jim Murray, Ret., U.S. Army. “You see it at every level, the service academies, the enlisted ranks, everywhere. This is not emphasizing military readiness and that is unacceptable.”
At the Veterans Town Hall in Kennesaw that evening, Colonel Mike Steele introduced Herschel and spoke about why Georgia needs him in Washington.
“Herschel Walker is kind, and he’s compassionate,” said Colonel Mike Steele. “Herschel has time for everyone, all the time… but that’s not why I’m voting for Herschel. I’m voting for Herschel because I trust him. The choice in November is simple. Herschel will always back veterans, Raphael Warnock will not.
