TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – The DeSantis campaign’s latest broadcast and digital advertisement spotlights retired U.S. Navy Captain Dan Bean who spoke highly of Gov. Ron DeSantis’s character while they both served in the Navy.

The Republican Party of Florida is airing the 30-second ad titled “Honor, Courage, Commitment.” Captain Bean discusses how DeSantis’ trials and triumphs in the Navy helped define his character and leadership today.

“I met Governor DeSantis in 2009 when he was on active duty.  

“He was a Navy commissioned officer and served in Iraq.

“When you’re advising SEAL Team 1, you’re making life and death decisions every day.  

“As someone who has served side-by-side with him, he is selfless. 

“He will do what is in your best interest, not his best interest.  

“The Navy’s core values are honor, courage, and commitment. Governor DeSantis embodied those core values on active duty, and he embodies them every day as the Governor of our state.”

“Governor DeSantis is a true servant leader.”

DeSantis was commissioned as a JAG officer after volunteering to join the U.S. Navy. As a U.S. Navy SEAL commander’s adviser while serving on active duty, DeSantis traveled to Iraq to support the SEAL campaign in Fallujah, Ramadi, and the remainder of the Al Anbar area. The Iraq Campaign Medal and the Bronze Star Medal for Meritorious Service are among DeSantis’ military honors.

On supporting veterans, DeSantis has spent more than $32 million to improve veteran facilities and build new state veterans’ nursing homes. He has provided scholarships for disabled veterans to attend higher education institutions. DeSantis also signed legislation establishing a pilot program for veteran suicide prevention, and many other initiatives.
