In an audacious act of courage and commitment, Florida Congressman Cory Mills (R-FL), an Army veteran, embarked on a high-risk solo mission to evacuate U.S. citizens stranded in Israel amid a relentless barrage of terror attacks by Hamas militants. In a lightning overnight trip, Mills, who has already facilitated the safe exit of 32 Americans, has further vowed to advocate and assist hundreds more, finding themselves to be “trapped” in the besieged nation. Unbowed to peril, Mills expressed his determination to show “solidarity with our Israeli brethren and help Americans evacuate,” testifying to the power of bipartisan action and individual responsibility in times of unprecedented crisis.
Since the Biden admin has failed to do their job once again, I've stepped in to rescue Americans stranded in war-torn Israel.

Congressman Mills’s sudden flight to Israel reaffirms his reputation as a battle-scarred field agent, more than just a conventional congressman, thereby bringing his unique background into sharp focus. Given his unusual resume as a defense contractor and co-founder of a private security firm, Mills was instrumental in the rescue mission of an American family caught in the catastrophic aftermath of the Biden administration’s haphazard Afghanistan withdrawal.
Rep. Brian Mast (R-FL) announced that Mills, not content to remain as a distant observer, communicated his plan to the concerned delegation of Florida’s congressional representatives. Furthermore, he publicly declared his intent to play an eminent role in assisting beleaguered Americans in Israel. The mounting toll of American victims, with 22 American citizens tragically lost in terror attacks as confirmed by the State Department, underscores the urgency behind Mills’s mission.
In the midst of escalating threats, Mills emerged as an emblem of steadfast conviction in the images shared by former Rep. Mayra Flores from Texas. The photographs, capturing Mills amidst a group of American citizens, echo a poignant narrative of relentless resilience and resolve. Taking a resolute stand from the battle-troubled land of Israel, Mills becomes an embodiment of a unifying spirit and a message of hope as he carries on with the evacuation efforts.

A grim testament to the stark reality on the ground, Hamas insurgents have not only cruelly snuffed out more than 1,200 innocent Israeli lives since they launched their bloody onslaught, but have, moreover, abducted at least 150 hostages into the volatile Gaza Strip, terrorizing both their hostages and the world with threats of taped executions. In response, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and US special forces have begun orchestrating a daring rescue mission into the treacherous terrain of the Gaza Strip.
As IDF Major General Itai Veruv starkly observed, the situation transcends conventional war narratives to mutate into a massacre, where innocents are slain in the supposed safety of their homes. His chilling recollection of the similarly gruesome European pogroms bolster a grim warning against complacency and underlines the need for swift, decisive international intervention.
In conclusion, the heroic efforts by Congressman Cory Mills are emblematic of wider libertarian values of individual initiative, courage in adversity, and an unwavering commitment to peace and human rights. The persistence shown by Mills, amid rising waves of violence, reaffirms faith in leadership. At times of great duress and terror, it is the unyielding spirit of exceptional individuals like Mills that serve as a beacon of hope and resilience. As we closely monitor the unfolding situation in Israel, it is paramount to continue the vigilant support for the safe evacuation of American nationals, and unceasingly strive for a peaceful resolution.
