Sherrod Brown Campaign Launches “Veterans & Military Families For Sherrod Brown”

Announces Endorsements From Retired Army Brigadier General Sam Kindred & Iraq War Veteran Jeremy Miller

COLUMBUS, OHIO – This weekend, Sherrod Brown’s campaign launched “Veterans & Military Families For Sherrod Brown,” a group of Ohioans supporting Sherrod Brown for his proven track record of fighting for Ohio’s veterans and their families. Coordinated by Co-Chairs Sam Kindred and Jeremy Miller, the group will play a critical advisory role on Veterans’ issues and work to get Ohio veterans involved in the campaign.

Co-Chairs Sam Kindred, a retired Army Brigadier General, and Jeremy Miller, a Veteran of the Iraq war  announced their endorsement of Senator Brown today with the below statement:

“Senator Sherrod Brown is fighting every day in the Senate for our Veterans and military families and there’s no doubt he’s on the side of Ohio’s Veterans and those who care about them. Sen. Brown championed the Hiring Heroes Act to help ensure there are civilian jobs for Veterans when we return home,  supported the largest increase in Veterans funding in the history of our nation, and in times of great distress, made it easier for military families to cut through the bureaucratic red tape that unfortunately accompanies the loss of a loved one.

“Now more than ever Veterans across the state deserve a champion for Veteran’s rights in the U.S. Senate and they have one in Sherrod Brown. We must do all we can to ensure he can continue fighting for us in the years to come.”

“I am so grateful for the strong support my campaign is receiving from General Kindred, Jeremy Miller and Veterans across the state of Ohio,” said Senator Brown. “But my thanks today are secondary to my never ending thanks for your service. Thank you for your bravery and dedication to our country. You have spent many days and nights away from the comforts of home, your family, your friends, and often in incredibly dangerous and precarious situations. Thank you for your sacrifice. We must continue fighting to ensure Ohio’s Veterans and military families receive the honor and respect they deserve abroad and at home.”

The launch of Veterans for Sherrod Brown will be accompanied by a new Facebook page and a section of the web site to keep veterans up-to-date on campaign-related issues and news. Ohio veterans can join Veterans for Sherrod Brown by clicking HERE.

As a member of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Senator Sherrod Brown is in a unique position to deliver for Ohio’s Veterans. Sen. Brown has fought to ensure the transition back to civilian life is as easy as possible for our Veterans, working to encourage businesses to hire Veterans, increase job training opportunities, and expanding educational opportunities. As a supporter of the largest increase in VA funding in U.S. history, Ohio’s veterans know that in Sherrod Brown they have a champion in the Senate fighting for them every day, just as they’ve always fought for us.
