Last week, Esther and David Muschel hosted Senator Martha McSally (R-AZ) for a Norpac pro-Israel meeting at their Englewood home.
Senator McSally, who served in the Air Force for 26 years, was the first female fighter pilot in the United States. She served six tours of duty, flew more than 300 combat hours, and made history by becoming the first woman to command a fighter squadron. She retired as a full colonel in 2010. She was appointed to fill John McCain’s empty seat earlier this year.
One of her first actions as a member of the U.S. Senate was co-sponsoring Senate Bill S. 1, which allocated $3.3 billion in aid to Israel; increasing joint security cooperation; and enacting measures to enforce states’ rights to condemn and counter the BDS movement. Senator McSally is running for reelection in November 2020.
