“It is my honor and privilege to endorse Lieutenant Colonel (Ret), Christian Castelli, for the United States Congress in North Carolina’s Sixth Congressional District. Christian is a highly decorated and respected U.S. Army Special Forces Officer who possesses the knowledge and experience to meet the challenges and threats the United States faces today,” said former Defense Secretary Christopher Miller.
“During a career spanning more than two decades, Christian served in 14 hostile fire zones and completed 6 tours in combat as a Green Beret. He led Special Forces soldiers on countless operations that supported U.S. National Security interests both domestically and abroad.”
“Chief among these experiences was Christian’s service as a Senior Advisor to the Office of the Secretary of Defense and as a White House, Congressional and Intelligence Community liaison. His vast knowledge of Department of Defense special operations policy provided leaders with sound advice while serving as a lead architect on numerous strategic plans during the Global War on Terror.”
“Christian’s foreign policy experience is unmatched. Having deployed to and served in many overseas posts as a Special Forces Officer, he was at the forefront of diplomacy and enforcing U.S. foreign policy. This experience alone makes him uniquely qualified among other candidates to serve in Congress.”
“Christian’s unique combination of education and experience make him an invaluable asset at the highest level of government. He is of unquestionable moral and ethical character as evinced by his service as an Inspector General. He is exactly the type of leader we need in Washington now, a trustworthy conservative that will be a stalwart on the issues.”
“I am proud to endorse combat veteran and Army Special Forces Green Beret Christian Castelli for Congress.”
