Our soldiers, past and present, have gone where others fear to go--preserving freedom! Kelli has been supportive of all bills that have come before the Legislature dealing with issues that affect our Veterans. Her two brothers, one in the Navy and one in the Air Force, both served in the first Gulf War and one brother recently served in Kuwait. Kelli believes we need to increase our efforts in creating statewide nursing homes for Veterans. Kelli co-sponsored bills that would exempt certain recipients of military medals of valor from special registration plate fees and would exempt one motor vehicle of an active duty military resident from ad valorem taxes. She also is passionate about instilling in our young people the sacrifice and impact our Veterans have made in preserving freedom at home and throughout the world. That is why is co-sponsored the "WV Remembers Act" which allows Veterans to share their experiences with young people in our schools. Veterans have given their lives & limbs in their service to our Country and deserve our utmost respect and gratitude for helping us to remain "One Nation Under God."
