ADVISORY: Tucson Veterans React to Blake Masters’ Military Criticism 
TUCSON — On Thursday at 10:30 am local time, Tucson-area veterans will hold a press conference in reaction to comments by Blake Masters where he disrespected our military, calling our servicemen and women “totally incompetent.”

And that’s just the start — Masters previously called U.S. entry into World War II “unjust,” said Al Qaeda is not a real threat to America, and bought into conspiracies around the 9/11 terrorist attack.

Speakers at Thursday’s event will highlight how Masters’ comments undermine Arizona’s tradition of honoring our military and insult our veterans who have served and sacrificed for the safety of our country.
RSVP: Please RSVP here for additional details.
