Republican US Representative-elect Jen Kiggans (Pardee’93), a retired Navy helicopter pilot and a geriatric nurse practitioner, defeated another pioneering female veteran, Democratic Congresswoman Elaine Luria, who was a Navy commander, in the November 8 midterm election. Kiggans will represent Virginia’s military-heavy, politically diverse, and historically moderate 2nd Congressional District. AP Photo by John C.
