National Defense

As your elected official, there is no responsibility more important to me than the safety and security of the American people. Enshrined in our Constitution’s charter is that our government provide for the common defense. The best way to defend ourselves and ensure peace is by having a strong, robust military and national defense. That is why I have consistently voted for funding to give our brave men and women in uniform the resources they need and to modernize our previously depleted military.

Home to Dyess Air Force Base, one of only two bases to house the B-1 bomber, our District plays an especially important role in America’s national security arsenal. In Congress, I have worked to secure continued funding for the B-1 and am fighting to get the next generation B-21 bomber to Dyess.

As your Congressman I will do my part to make sure America’s fighting force remains the best in the world so we can have a country that is safe, secure, and free.
