It is my belief that Congress must provide our men and women in uniform what they need to defend our country at home and abroad. I support strengthening our military and ensuring they have both the tools and the rules of engagement that permits them to succeed on the battlefield. In addition, our service members and veterans deserve members of Congress who will unequivocally support them and have their back.
Finally, we must do a better job at making sure Washington focuses on its core function so that all active-duty military and veterans are getting the health care and benefits they have earned.
