When men and women put their lives on the line to defend and represent the interests of our nation, we must demonstrate the same loyalty and love to them.

What You Get From JB Smiley, Jr:

I am the child of a U.S. Veteran. I’ve seen the long lines at the V.A. Medical Center. I’m all too aware of the difficulties some of our military men and women have when trying to find employment upon returning to civilian life. We’ve all heard the stories of mental health challenges after war and difficult adjustment periods after long deployments overseas.

It takes a special type of strength to put your life on the line for another person – let alone 320 million strangers. That’s why, as County Commissioner, I’ll fight for the unique needs of our military men and women who choose to reside in Shelby County. Thank you for your service to our country.
