Palazzo Commends Nomination of General Kelly for Homeland Security

Washington, DC – Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) released the following statement regarding the President-elect’s decision to nominate Marine General John Kelly to lead the Department of Homeland Security:

“Once again, Marines lead the way and General John Kelly is no exception. His military service, leadership experience and general candor make him the perfect man for the job. Kelly’s late son was also in uniform during Hurricane Katrina and assisted in the cleanup of the aftermath here in Mississippi. He was later killed in action during the war on terror. General Kelly is a man who knows service and sacrifice more than most. I look forward to his leadership and guidance as head of Homeland Security.”
