"For me personally, the legacy of serving in Afghanistan will be a renewed commitment to home. I left Afghanistan with a commitment to return home and generate a transformative impact in both my community and state. Making multiple visits to Washington, D.C., and across Oklahoma, I’ve been working to learn more and take a further role in addressing some of Oklahoma’s critical challenges. I’ve been listening and learning from Oklahomans about what more can be done to improve our state. My hope is to continue making a transformative impact on those around me, to illuminate the human spirit of all of us and our capabilities and to work to ensure a prosperous community that all public and military service is intended to protect and support. America will always be worth fighting for, and I intend to keep serving and fighting." ~ Bradley Ward
