Sixteen former service members won a seat in Congress in the recent midterm elections, more than have been elected in nearly a decade, according to a report from The Hill.

Representative-elect Michael Waltz, a Florida Republican, said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Monday that he’s “thrilled” that so many veterans are seeking office.

"Veterans know how to get things done," he added. "We are about mission, we are about country and we are about getting results."

According to the Hill, 93 veterans will service in the next Congress, 16 of whom will be sworn in for the first time.

"In the foxhole, on the ship, on the place, nobody cares about race, religion, socioeconomic background," Waltz said.

"Our enemies have names like Mullah Omar and Usama bin Laden. Not Nancy or Paul or Mitch. And I think that's perspective you're gonna see."
