about me

Hello, and thank you for visiting my site and considering me for your next representative in the US Senate. 

My full name is Danny Clyde Benson II and I was born on April 4, 1978 in Winchester, TN and have lived the majority of my life in the small rural town of Huntland, TN.  I currently live in the same house that I grew up in as a gift from my parents when I returned home from deployment to Afghanistan in 2011.  They currently live next door to me.

Family and friends are very important to me and I feel you can never have enough of either one.   I still have the same friends from my early childhood and have been blessed to add many more over the years.

I had a very modest and humble upbringing that instilled in me the values of faith, a hard day's work, honesty, integrity and respect.  These values are slowly being lost in today's society.

After graduation from high school in 1997, I entered the workforce after a few failed attempts at joining the Navy.  I kept getting disqualified for medical reasons.  My first job was a cart pusher at Wal-Mart.  Since then, I have worked in factories, as a security guard and even briefly had a job transporting prisoners all over the country.  

I have attempted going to college a few times but have yet to receive a degree.  

In 2009, my dream of serving my country was realized at the age of 31 when I joined the US Army Reserves.  My military career has had its ups and downs over the last 10  years, but I love putting on that uniform and serving my country.

During my time in Afghanistan in 2011, I really began getting interested in politics and began learning as much as possible.  I will admit that I don't have all the answers and maybe not even all of the questions, but I have always prided myself in the ability to learn quickly, adapt and overcome all obstacles.

I look forward to serving you if elected and working to restore America to greatness like never before.
