Iraq Vets for Congress announced today it is supporting Kevin Calvey to replace U.S. Rep. Mary Fallin, who is not seeking re-election in order to run for Governor.
Leaders lead by example and Kevin Calvey set a great example, said Kieran Lalor, Chairman of Iraq Vets for Congress. Calvey joined the Army National Guard after the start of the Iraq War, at age 37, when he was already a businessman and elected official.
Calvey was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for his service.
“I’m honored to have the support of Iraq Vets for Congress,” said Calvey. “Serving my country in uniform in Iraq was one of the greatest honors of my life. Now, I hope to have the opportunity to serve Oklahoma in Congress.”
Calvey served as a state legislator from Del City for eight years after being elected in November of 1998.
