Jay Williams on Homeland Security

 

 


Don't use fear of ISIS to justify government overreach

As a Vietnam veteran, Jay has experienced war firsthand. His ideas about national security and combating threats like ISIS are informed by his personal experiences. In recent years, Republican leaders have used fear of groups like Al Qaeda and ISIS to justify government overreaches. Jay knows that Americans can live in safety without sacrificing the freedom that make our country great in the first place.

Served in the US Navy and then the Peace Corps

I had the opportunity to serve my country in both the US Navy and in the Peace Corps. As a Midshipman, I served on the USS Oriskany in the Vietnam War where I learned to work with discipline under pressure. After graduating from college I was commissioned as a Naval Officer and earned my wings as a Naval Aviator. I served as a search and rescue helicopter pilot in Italy and Virginia Beach. My 10 years of military service allowed me to develop my leadership skills and formed my passion for public service.

After my time in the Navy, my wife Carol and I volunteered for the Peace Corps and were assigned to Bogota, Colombia. It was during this time that Carol and I gained perspective on America's prosperity, and the importance of working together with community leaders at the local level to impact change.

Served in the Peace Corps as well as the U.S. Navy

Williams made his announcement for Senate in Sioux Falls. "My family and I moved back to South Dakota for the quality of the schools and the sense of community. I'm afraid our young people and those considering a move to South Dakota wouldn't make the same choice to raise a family in our great state today. We need a Senator focused on the priorities that matter to South Dakotans," said Williams.
