My Position on National Defense
Providing for a strong national defense is one of the primary Constitutional responsibilities of the federal government. The failure to do this will jeopardize our national sovereignty and every Constitutional liberty. I have voted for defense funding legislation that will rebuild our national defense while providing our troops with the resources, equipment and training they need to defend our nation.
A critical component of supporting our national defense is strengthening our military bases such as Naval Air Station Corpus Christi and Corpus Christi Army Depot. I work around the clock and with our partners to ensure our bases have what they need to support our national defense and the servicemembers who sustain the bases.
Our troops and their families sacrifice daily to ensure that our way of life is protected, and they should be honored for their dedication to this nation. I will work to rebuild our military and support a thoughtful foreign policy.
