Campaign Website

Cory Mills is a husband, father, patriot, combat veteran, entrepreneur, foreign policy expert and conservative. 

Born in Winter Haven, Florida, Mills is a decorated U.S. Army combat veteran, and recipient of the Bronze Star. He left Florida to serve his country first in uniform, and then to serve the U.S. State Department and other government agencies in both Afghanistan and Iraq.


He served with the 82nd Airborne Division and was a member of Joint Special Operations Command Combined Joint Task Force 20 in Iraq. While serving abroad, he was struck twice in 2006, once with an improvised explosive device and once with an Iranian explosively formed projectile. Fortunately, he was able to stabilize himself prior to evacuation. For his actions, former U.S. Ambassador to Iraq Zalmay Khalilizad presented Mills with a Certificate of Appreciation from the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad for his actions which saved members of his team and U.S. military service members.


Mills has nearly seven years of service in Iraq, approximately two years in Afghanistan, served in the Kosovo Campaign in 2000, and has traveled to the front lines of Ukraine during the Russian invasion to provide information for USAID and Department of State officials.  


In the private sector, he co-founded Pacem Solution International, LLC, and Pacem Defense, LLC, with his wife, Rana. Through the PACEM companies, the couple has supported risk management assessments, intelligence collection and security for media such as NPR news. In 2018, Pacem Defense acquired Amtec Less Lethal Systems, Inc., now known as ALS, Inc., in Perry, Florida, to help continue their support to the law enforcement communities.
