Making America Safe

Cleveland, OH-Joseph Rice is a Veteran of the Army National Guard with 17 years of service, where he flew as a Helo pilot. Following his military service he was recruited as a private contractor to provide aerial support for our troops in Afghanistan, where he logged in over 600 hours of flight time. Due to an injury he sustained ‘in country’ he will be undergoing reconstructive surgery of his ankle when he returns home from the RNC Convention. During the presentation Monday night by the heroes from Benghazi, Rice, who is an elected alternate delegate and founding member of the America First Delegation from Oregon, was on the floor of the convention where he held high the flag he carried aboard his Helo on every mission he flew in Afghanistan. Rice was in Afghanistan at the time of the Benghazi attack. He said “I just wanted to show those men that I understood what they did that night, and that I appreciate them. I wanted to show respect for what they did.” Rice is the Josephine County Coordinator for Oath Keepers, and is a founding member of Pacific Patriot Network. In the picture with Rice, the men holding up his arms are delegates from Michigan and Arizona.
