Navy SEAL-turned-congressman Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Tex.) believes the United States should maintain a permanent military presence in Afghanistan similar to bases in former war zones such as Germany, Japan, and South Korea in order to prevent terrorist groups from plotting the next 9/11-style attack on U.S. soil.
Congressman-elect and Navy SEAL Dan Crenshaw has accepted an apology from “Saturday Night Live” star Pete Davidson and urged Americans to remember the heroes killed on Sept. 11, including Davidson’s father, a New York City firefighter.
As if there weren’t already plenty of great reasons to serve in the military (see the world, spread democracy, eat free at Applebee’s), we can now add “get elected” to the list. A stint in the armed forces is the “single best-testing trait” for congressional candidates, according to recent poll of likely voters by a veteran’s super PAC. And and voters from both parties view those who served in a positive light.
