James Mackler for Senate

James Mackler for Senate

A sense of duty compelled James to join the U.S. Army after we were attacked on 9/11. A thirty-year-old attorney, he closed his law practice, enlisted, earned an age waiver to fly Black Hawk helicopters, and became a Screaming Eagle serving in the 101st Airborne Division. In Iraq, he saw what happens when the rule of law breaks down.

As a military veteran and Tennessee National Guardsman, James knows that true leadership comes from a sense of duty – an obligation to protect and work for the benefit of others. The best results are accomplished when we recognize the value in one another and the unique contribution of each person. True leaders hold themselves and others accountable. These are values that James learned serving his country and will continue to carry as a U.S. Senator.
