Haley is a first lieutenant in the South Carolina National Guard and

the reason I joined the National Guard,” said Haley in a statement. “It
is important to me to be able to give back.” In a news conference

you worry… all needs to be well on the home front. And so we will be
fine here, and he just needs to take care of himself when he’s there.”
