A new political entity has emerged, organized by those who have faced genuine combat rather than political skirmishes and spats among partisan operatives. Here comes Green Beret PAC, set to charge up the hill — Capitol Hill, that is.
“It’s going to take green berets to take the Hill. Green Beret PAC is committed to supporting U.S. House and Senate candidates from the Special Forces community and their colleagues from other branches of Special Operations,” the organization said in its mission statement, which also notes that “morality, decency and integrity” are among its founding watchwords.
“Veteran candidates are proactive. They encourage change while keeping with American values and consistently work for the betterment of community and country,” the statement said.
The new political action committee went active on Memorial Day, founded by Jason Bacon, who has noteworthy credentials for such a mission. Mr. Bacon is himself a retired Green Beret senior NCO.
“Green Beret PAC serves as an independent expenditure arm for campaigns. In true Green Beret fashion, the PAC serves as a force multiplier to assist campaigns in reaching voters through paid voter contact,” the organization said.
