Today Destiny Wells, a nineteen-year Army veteran, announced the endorsement of her campaign by the VoteVets PAC. VoteVets, representing over 1.5 million veterans and military families, supports veterans running for office around the country. Destiny Wells enlisted in the Army National Guard at the age of 19 following the attacks on September 11th, 2001. Almost two decades later, Destiny continues to serve as a U.S. Army Reserve Lieutenant Colonel.
“I am honored to be given VoteVets’ endorsement,” said Destiny Wells. “As a military intelligence officer, I have seen first-hand the state of democracy across the world and I am proud to have VoteVets’ support as I continue to defend access to democracy in the Indiana Secretary of State’s office.”
Started in 2006, VoteVets PAC and VoteVets Action Fund have been the home for progressive veterans, military families, and their civilian supporters for over 15 years. It is the first organization of its kind and the largest, with over one and a half million supporters in all 50 states. VoteVets uses public issue campaigns to relentlessly lift up the voices of veterans on matters of national security, veterans’ care, and everyday issues that affect the lives of those who served, and their families.
“In these turbulent political times, our veterans, communities and country need leaders like Destiny Wells, who will continue to serve the nation and put the country first.” said Jon Soltz, Chairman, VoteVets PAC.
