Captain Dave Ruff (USN, ret.), one of the most respected U.S. Nuclear Submarine Force officers, former Commanding Officer of the nuclear ballistic missile submarine USS Louisiana (SSBN-743), and a senior officer at Combined Task Force 69, COMSUBGRU EIGHT, and Navy BUPERS, has endorsed John Mues. John served under Captain Ruff during the initial combat phase of Operation Iraqi Freedom and GWOT.
Captain Ruff said, “John Mues is one of the most creative, thoughtful, and resourceful leaders I worked with in my 25 year Navy submarine career. It’s clear John’s impressive and unique approach to problem solving is driven by his Montana values and life experience. As a veteran, and as a Republican, I am confident that, if elected, John would continue to serve Montana and our country with a strong vision for national security and American prosperity. He has my full endorsement.”
