He grew up in Washington DC and Indiana
Pence Jr. spent his life growing up in the public eye. Despite the extra attention, he described growing up in both Washington D.C. and Indiana as relatively “normal” and has said he appreciated the unique experiences his dad’s role afforded him.
Although all of Mike Pence’s children are independent, they are also very close. According to WTHR, Mike’s political career was always a family affair. He told WTHR: This has always been a family affair for us, from the very first campaign headed out to county fairs, while Karen and I would be shaking hands at the Republican tent, the kids would be standing out in front of the tent, handing out flyers and shaking hands.”
He was Training to be a Pilot as his Dad ran for VP in 2016
While Pence was becoming a household name following his nomination as the Republican vice-presidential candidate in 2016, Pence Jr. was training to become a pilot in the United States Marine Corps following his graduation from basic training in Quantico, Virginia, in September of 2015. His career as a pilot has Pence Jr. following in his family’s footsteps, as his grandfather was a pilot in the Air Force and his mother also has a pilot’s license.
Pence often takes the time to highlight and pay tribute to his son’s service to the country, and he regularly shares photos of Pence Jr. in his military uniform on social media.
He graduated from the naval aviator training in 2018
Pence Jr. graduated from naval aviator training and received his golden wings in 2018 and his father attended the ceremony at the Naval Air Station Meridian in Mississippi. He was also involved in the event as he presented a challenge coin to all seven of the pilots graduating.
Pence Jr. was forced to spend an extended period of time training at the base because jets had been grounded during 2017 in response to pilots reporting episodes of oxygen deficiency. This meant the usual year-long program was extended into two. Capt. Brian Horstman, the base commander at Naval Air Station Meridian, described Pence Jr. and his fellow graduates as “kind of special to us because they were here twice as long.”
Michael Pence Jr. Wife (Sarah Pence)
Pence Jr. stays out of the public spotlight and little is known about his personal life. However, it is in the public domain that he is married to his wife, Sarah. The two wed in late 2016 with a low-profile ceremony at the Governor’s mansion in Indiana, one of the last times Pence used the location before relocating to Washington D.C., as reported by Bustle.
Sarah attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and graduated in 2019. She often shares images of herself with her husband on social media. While she and Pence Jr. rarely give political opinions beyond supporting their family, Sarah did write a post on Facebook during the protests against police brutality over the summer in support of the Black Lives Matter Movement.
