MAFPAC Endorses Josh Mandel for Senate
Move America Forward | September 29, 2012
DAYTON, OH – Ohio Senate candidate Josh Mandel received a powerful endorsement today, from the pro-troop political action committee Move America Forward Freedom PAC (MAFPAC). MAFPAC, which is a network of veterans, military families, and patriotic troop supporters, focuses on supporting candidates who will back the troops and their missions while serving in congress and who will pursue a strong anti-terrorism agenda, focusing on winning the war on terror.
MAFPAC sent spokesperson and Gold Star Mom Debbie Lee to deliver the endorsements.
MAFPAC is proud to endorse Mandel for his record of service to his country, including two tours in Iraq as a Marine Corps veteran. He currently serves as the State Treasurer of Ohio and is a former state representative, re-elected in a district with a 2-1 ratio of democrats, showing Mandel’s ability to face challenges head on and get the job done.
Josh Mandel was inspired by a strong sense of duty to country, enlisting in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves in 2000, where he graduated first in his class from Marine Corps Boot Camp and first in his class from Marine Corps Intelligence School. He was an obvious leader from his early days.
His Marine Corps career spanned eight years, including two tours in Anbar Province, Iraq. During both tours he was awarded the Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal for “superior performance of his duties.”
“I know what it means to sacrifice something for love of your country, my son Marc was a Navy SEAL and regularly put himself at risk. He made the ultimate sacrifice because he loved our nation so much. Josh Mandel shows the same leadership that our nation needs at this time. He will not back down from tough battles in the Senate, because he has faced and fought tougher challenges on the battlefield. In congress we need people who are committed to our troops and their missions in the war on terror. Josh has demonstrated that commitment on the battlefield and will continue to do so in the Senate and that’s why we are proud to support him,” concluded Debbie Lee.
Debbie’s son Marc Alan Lee was the first Navy SEAL to be killed in the war in Iraq. Marc was killed in Ramadi on August 2nd, 2006 after saving the life of a fellow SEAL and putting his own safety at risk in order to keep his squad safe. Since losing her son, Debbie has traveled the country speaking out in support of the troops and the mission her son fought for and believed in.
