Meet & Greet U.S. Senate Candidate Daniel Gade
We will also have U.S. Senate candidate Daniel Gade in Stafford at 5pm tomorrow for a Meet & Greet. After you’re done door knocking, come on out to Fatty’s Taphouse and meet our Republican nominee who Virginia will be sending to the U.S. Senate next January.
RSVP to Ian Waite
Dr. Daniel Gade is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, professor, and public policy leader running to serve the Commonwealth of Virginia in the U.S. Senate. During more than 20 years of military service, he was awarded the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts. Daniel graduated from West Point in 1997 and served in multiple locations in the United States and Korea.
In 2004, his unit deployed to Iraq for Operation Iraqi Freedom. He led his unit of 150 soldiers on many combat missions, was wounded by enemy fire twice, and was decorated for valor. His second combat wounding caused his entire right leg to be amputated, and he spent the next year in the hospital, enduring more than 40 surgeries.
