One year ago, Kevin Calvey had every reason to stay in Oklahoma. He’d been married only three weeks ago, had an established law practice, deep roots in his community and eight years of service in the House of Representatives. But, a calling took him overseas.
“The reason I wanted to join the military was because as a legislator, I worked with veterans and I’d always admired these men and women who served in uniform. Once we started going into Iraq I couldn’t stand it anymore, and I joined,” said Kevin. “And after being deployed, my admiration has only increased for our veterans.”
