One of my greatest responsibilities as your Senator is to be an active steward of our national security and military. America shines as the beacon of freedom in a dangerous and dynamic world. In regions of the world where authoritarian regimes reign, individuals struggling to gain recognition for basic human rights take comfort in America’s resolve to fight for democratic ideals. Support for our allies sends a powerful message about our commitment to freedom. Regardless of whether battles of the future are fought on land, air, sea, space, or cyberspace, our men and women in uniform need to be armed with the most advanced technology and best weaponry.
