Baird, recently elected to represent Indiana’s 4th congressional district, lost his left arm while serving in the Army during the Vietnam War, while Crenshaw, a Navy SEAL veteran, lost his right eye to an IED blast in Afghanistan in 2012. Mast himself lost both legs to an Afghan IED in 2010.
“5 eyes. 5 arms. 4 legs. All American,” Mast, who has served in Congress since January 2017, wrote of his fellow Republicans and incoming freshman congressman. “Welcome to Congress, @ElectJimBaird and @DanCrenshawTX.”
According to Military.com, all three of the men are Bronze Star recipients as well.
