With Honor Action Announces New Ads Touting Congressman Adam Kinzinger’s Leadership for Our Troops

Rep. Kinzinger Successfully Fought to Raise Troop Pay and Pass Legislation to Combat COVID-19

CHARLOTTE, NC – With Honor Action is launching a TV and radio advocacy campaign applauding Rep. Adam Kinzinger’s strong support for the U.S. Armed Forces community and servant leadership. The ads highlight Rep. Kinzinger’s work to secure the largest pay raise in a decade for our military, provide paid parental leave for Department of Defense and Intelligence community employees, and fight the spread of COVID-19.

“Congressman Kinzinger serves America both as a member of our military and as a member of Congress,” said Rye Barcott, With Honor Action Co-Founder and CEO. “As the U.S. surpasses 100,000 deaths from the COVID-19 pandemic, Congressman Kinzinger is working with military veterans in the For Country Caucus to fight the spread of the disease. His record in service to our nation is bolstered by his bipartisan work to raise pay for members of our military and to provide paid parental leave for the defense community.”

Beginning today, With Honor Action will run ads on both TV and radio in Illinois’ 16th congressional district.

Congressman Kinzinger serves as a Lt. Colonel in the Air National Guard and recently deployed with the Guard. He is a member of the bipartisan, Member-led, For Country Caucus of principled military veterans.
