Kevin Calvey Touts Iraq Service In Interview

By Andrew W. Griffin/Oklahoma Watchdog ~ Sitting in an Oklahoma City restaurant, the self-described “libertarian-leaning conservative” Kevin Calvey, one of a number of Republicans running for the 5th congressional district being vacated by Mary Fallin, appears relaxed and engaged at the same time as he spoke to Oklahoma Watchdog on a recent late-spring morning.

Calvey, who served as a legislator from Del City for eight years, addressed a number of different issues – issues that are important to Oklahoma and America.

Calvey touts his experience having served in the Army National Guard in Iraq in 2007 and 2008 during the troop surge, where, in his late thirties, he worked towards the prosecution of Al Qaeda leaders.

“I’m the only one running who has served in a combat zone,” boasts Calvey, sharing examples of when he was in harm’s way while serving in Iraq.
