Milam's Continuing Story of Service
Milam Langella was raised with strong Christian, conservative values. Those values called him to action through service for his country in the War on Terror. He served as an infantry officer in major combat operations during Operation Iraqi Freedom I and II. After doing 2 tours in Iraq, Milam continues to feel compelled to serve his country through representing Texas District 2 in the US Congress.
He believes that it is imperative to secure a safe future for Americans. A future that is still based in sound constitutional principles. One that is of free-market policies that provide the opportunity for growth so that all Americans can partake in the American dream.
Chapter 1 – The Beginning
Milam Langella was born in Branford, Connecticut. The same birth state of Nathan Hale, who gave his life fighting for our freedoms against the British in 1776. For his actions, Nathan Hale was hanged by the British. His reported last words, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country!” This is the same fighting spirit that is deep within the heart of Milam.
