Team Herschel Launches Veterans for Herschel Coalition

Monday, August 1, 2022

ATLANTA – Today, Team Herschel launched the Veterans for Herschel Coalition.

“Our veterans are true heroes, so it is an honor to have their support behind Team Herschel with the launch of our Veterans for Herschel Coalition,” said Herschel Walker. “After dedicating many years traveling to countless military bases around the world and doing whatever I can to help our incredible men and women of the U.S. military, I have experienced overwhelming appreciation for what they do and sacrifice on a daily basis. Our veterans are the reason we are the greatest country in the world, and they will always have my full support — especially when I’m in the U.S. Senate. It’s time they have a fighter in Washington who will never abandon them. It is my hope every Georgia veteran knows they can count on me.”

Team Herschel is happy to announce the following veterans as Co-Chairs of Veterans for Herschel:

State Senator Bruce Thompson, Candidate for Labor Commissioner, E-4 Specialist, U.S Army
State Senator Mike Dugan, Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army
State Representative David Belton, Major, U.S. Air Force
Michael Steele, Colonel, U.S. Army
Jim Lindenmayer, Captain, U.S. Army
David Waldrop, 1st Lieutenant, U.S. Air Force

Phil Forsberg, Lieutenant Colonel, U.S. Army
Ron Johnson, 1st Sergeant, U.S. Marine Corps

For most of his life, Herschel has been a strong advocate for mental health and the military. Standing with veterans is a crucial part of this campaign, and Team Herschel looks forward to giving them a seat at the table this November.
