Defense and Veterans

As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, the constitutional responsibility to “provide for the common defense” is a top priority of mine. This duty is more important now than ever as we face a range of serious threats around the globe. In order to safeguard our nation and our way of life, we must continuously strengthen our military and provide the very best for our troops. It is equally important that we continue providing for our nation's veterans when they return home from military service. During my time in Congress, I will focus on ensuring that those who have defended our nation have access to high-quality health care, education, and family support.
