Last September, True Broward TV spoke with Brian Mast, candidate for U.S. Congress (FL-18). For his service in Afghanistan, Mast was awarded medals for Valor, Merit, and Sacrifice, including The Bronze Star Medal, The Army Commendation Medal for Valor, The Purple Heart Medal, and The Defense Meritorious Service Medal.

Mast talks about his support for veterans groups such as Stand Out and Honor Flight. As a wounded veteran and double amputee, Mast is fully aware of issues veterans face at VA hospitals. He’s running against Democrat Randy Perkins on the November ballot.
