By the time Amy McGrath was 12 years old, she had already decided on becoming a fighter pilot. But when she wrote her congressman at the age of 13, he responded saying that women were prohibited from serving in combat roles in the U.S. military. That didn’t stop Amy. She wrote to every member of her congressional delegation and every member of the House and Senate Armed Services Committees asking them to change the law. She never got a letter back from Mitch McConnell.
During her senior year in high school, the ban on women in combat roles was lifted, and Amy was accepted into the United States Naval Academy. She went on to spend 20 years as a U.S. Marine serving our country, flying 89 combat missions, and she was the first woman marine to fly in an F-18 in combat.
When Amy ran for Congress in 2018 in Kentucky against Mitch McConnell’s hand-picked congressman, she ran a campaign fueled by tens of thousands of small-dollar donors and was only just barely defeated. Now more than ever, we need members of the United States Senate like Amy McGrath who will fight to protect our health care, invest in our families and communities, and end the political games of self-serving career politicians like Mitch McConnell.
