Scott Dewitz: Mark Kelly is a war hero

February 27, 2019

Editor: I’m responding to Tom Hale’s “three strikes against Mark Kelly” letter. Mr. Hale wrote that one of the reasons he won’t vote for Mark Kelly is that he was an astronaut and was not likely to be shot down in outer space.

Mr. Hale goes on to point out that Sen. McSally was a decorated war veteran. What Mr. Hale neglected to mention is retired Astronaut Mark Kelly is also a decorated war veteran, as a naval aviator with over 39 combat missions during the Gulf War. Both McSally and Kelly should be thanked for their military service.
