More Than 1,000 Veterans Flock To New DeSantis Coalition Just 2 Weeks After Launch: 'Service Above Self' - Florida Gov Ron DeSantis Is The Only Military Veteran In The Presidential Race

Andrew Mark Miller at offers a piece on how military veterans are flocking to presidential candidate and Navy veteran Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, the only military veteran in the presidential race.   

FIRST ON FOX: Over 1,000 veterans have joined the National Veterans Coalition recently launched by GOP presidential candidate Ron DeSantis, his campaign tells Fox News Digital.


The DeSantis campaign launched the coalition in South Carolina two weeks ago touting the Florida governor’s status as the only veteran in the presidential race on both sides of the aisle while highlighting his "Mission First" military and national defense policy unveiled this summer.


"Leadership is a privilege and should be earned, not given," Congressman Rich McCormick (R-GA), a decorated Marine Corps and Navy veteran, who is the national chair for the Veterans for DeSantis Coalition, told Fox News Digital. "Veterans from across the nation are lining up to support Ron DeSantis for president because he is the only candidate in this race who has worn the flag on his sleeve and truly understands what it means to put service above self. It's a dangerous world, and we need a commander-in-chief who is ready to go on Day One."
