New Congress Welcomes Former Military Members

The Associated Press reports that “a number of the new arrivals have served in the military, something that has become increasingly rare on Capitol Hill.”  

“Democrats Seth Moulton and Ruben Gallego both served with the Marines in Iraq, while another incoming freshman, Republican Lee Zeldin of New York, served with the Army there.”  

“Republican Rep.-elect Martha McSally of Arizona is a retired Air Force colonel and the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat. She told “Fox News Sunday” that military veterans bring a problem-solving perspective.”
