HERRING CRITICAL OF MARSHALL’S EFFORT TO BAN OPEN SERVICE IN VIRGINIA’S NATIONAL GUARD
Leesburg, VA – Senator Mark Herring (D-Loudoun and Fairfax) today issued the following statement with regard to Delegate Bob Marshall’s (R-Prince William and Loudoun) effort to prohibit open service in Virginia’s National Guard:
“The era of discrimination in our Armed Forces has come to an end, and it is unfortunate that Delegate Marshall continues to try to prevent patriotic Virginians from serving their country and their commonwealth.”
“The citizens of Loudoun County and all Virginia deserve better from their representatives. It is time for Delegate Marshall, and those who would support discrimination in our National Guard, to move on and focus instead on other difficult challenges facing our commonwealth.”
Senator Herring is the co-Chairman of the Virginia General Assembly’s National Guard Caucus.

Sen. Herring's Supports Those Who Choose To Serve
Sen. Herring has always stood up for everyone in his District, no matter what. This week is no different. When a fellow member of the Assembly tries to legislate hate while at the same time harming our military readiness, our Senator stands up to the crazy, again.
