Rick Scott Will Donate Senate Salary to Navy SEAL Foundation

This week, U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., announced he will donate his fourth quarter Senate salary to the Navy SEAL Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.

“My wife, Ann, and I are proud to both come from hardworking military families. Our upbringing, as well as my own service in the Navy means that we know firsthand the sacrifices our men and women in uniform, and their families, make to serve our nation. With more than 1.5 million veterans calling Florida home, I’ve worked hard as both Governor and now Florida’s U.S. Senator to make sure our state is the most veteran-friendly in the nation and honor the American heroes who protect our freedoms. Today, Ann and I are proud to support the Navy SEAL Foundation and its incredible efforts to support members of the Naval Special Warfare community and their families,” Scott said.

William Strong, the chairman of the 2021 Naples Navy SEAL Foundation Evening of Tribute, thanked Scott for the assistance.

“As we solemnly mark in 2021 the 20th Anniversary of the attacks on our nation, we are reminded that our freedoms remain under attack. Navy SEALs and other men and women in uniform fight every day to preserve these freedoms. When the Navy SEALs execute the highest risk, no fail operations, they can take comfort knowing that the Navy SEAL Foundation and its community of supporters are standing with them and their families. Senator Scott and Mrs. Scott’s gift allows the foundation to execute its mission. We are extremely grateful to Senator Scott and Mrs. Scott for their generous gift,” he said.

    Problem is the U government does not care and is anti- American. Thank you Rick Scott for your service and donations to help veterans.
