Sending our troops overseas, making sure those who have come home receive the very best healthcare, the applicability of military skills in the private sector — you name it — all these issues have affected both me and my family personally.
Like many South Carolinians, most of my family are military veterans. I am the daughter of U.S. Army retired Brigadier General James E. Mace, who saw two tours of combat in Vietnam and another in the 1964 Dominican Republic coup d’etat.
I am enormously supportive of all those who have served our country and will strongly fight for them in Congress, because to me, they’re family.
And Parris Island is part of this family—not only here in Beaufort, but to our entire state. Since 1915, the birthplace of Marines has always called the Lowcountry home and I will do everything possible in Congress to see it remains so.
