SOFA Calls on DCCC to Apologize to Iraq War Veteran and NY Congressional Candidate Lee Zeldin

Special Operations for America today called on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) to apologize for calling congressional candidate Lee Zeldin, an Iraq war veteran, a “coward.”

“Lee Zeldin has served his country honorably. The DCCC should be thanking Lee Zeldin for defending our freedoms, not attacking him as a coward. Whoever is responsible for this insult needs to apologize as it offends all of us who have worn the uniform,” said Gary Stubblefield, a former Navy SEAL and chairman of Special Operations for America (SOFA).

Zeldin is a Republican member of the New York State Senate running for Congress in the 1st Congressional District. Zeldin spent four years with the U.S. Army. In 2006, while assigned to the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division, Zeldin was deployed to Iraq with fellow paratroopers in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
