News from Representative Waltz


Dear Friend,


Happy Veterans Day! As a Green Beret and combat veteran, every day I strive to be worthy of the sacrifices made by our service members and their families. Today, I remember and honor the soldiers I served with, those who didn’t come home and those who left a piece of themselves in far-away lands and the many still deployed, executing critical missions to keep our nation safe. 


On this Veterans Day, join me in thanking the 18 million veterans living across our country, over 1.5 million in Florida and more than 73,000 in our district who have nobly and honorably served our nation.
