National Security

In office, I will work to reverse the damage President Obama has done to our national defense capabilities.   I will do so by advocating for the investments in national defense—and specifically in the Army—required to ensure we remain the world’s greatest military power.

I will also be an aggressive advocate on behalf of service members and families stationed at Fort Campbell, one of our country’s premiere military installations.  I will work with the House Armed Services and Appropriations Committees to ensure Fort Campbell has the infrastructure it needs to support our troops and their mission.  I will also work with the Department of Defense to highlight the unique capabilities of Fort Campbell—including its airfield and its ability to quickly deploy troops as a Power Projection Platform, among others—in an effort to bring more service members and assignments to the post, which is vitally important to the economy of Hopkinsville and the surrounding community.
