More than 300 military family members endorse Biden

BY REBECCA KHEEL - 10/23/20 05:30 AM EDT

More than 300 military family members are endorsing Democratic nominee Joe Biden for president.

In an open letter released Friday, the spouses, parents, siblings and children of service members endorsed Biden as a “man of integrity with a lifelong record of public service and leadership.”

“Joe and Jill Biden are a military family,” the endorsers wrote. “They are intimately familiar with the fear, anxiety and pride that come with sending a loved one into harm's way. But they are more than a military family. They have been staunch advocates for service members, veterans, their families, caregivers and survivors.”

President Trump’s actions, by contrast, have “convinced us that he does not value the lives of those who served,” the letter said.

Among the more high-profile signatories are Annie McChrystal, whose husband, retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal, endorsed Biden earlier this month; Joyce Raezer, former executive director of the National Military Family Association; former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D), who previously endorsed Biden, and his wife Dorothy; and Kathy Roth-Douquet, co-founder of Blue Star Families.
