Defense & National Security

The most important role of the federal government is protecting our citizens from national security threats. This means creating a strong system for defense both at home and abroad. The United States should continue to act as a defender of freedom and a staunch supporter of our allies worldwide.

As the representative of Fort Bragg, the epicenter of the universe, I know how important a properly funded and functioning military is to our nation. It is Congress’s responsibility to ensure the Pentagon’s budget reflects the threats we face. We must be prepared to fight threats not only from traditional nation-states, but also determined groups of terrorists, like ISIS, al-Shabaab, and al-Qaeda, who seek to wreak havoc on the American dream. It is vitally important that Congress continue to protect American citizens and interests both at home and abroad.

Under President Donald Trump’s leadership, we have taken steps to rebuild our military, given our troops a well-deserved pay raise and bolstered border security. I introduced legislation to ensure special operators who are serving in combat receive the same tax relief as other service members, and my legislation to increase funding for our Special Forces and to ensure soldier pay adequately reflects modern warfare demands was signed into law.



As your Congressman, I will work every day to ensure the United States sustains a world-class force that can operate wherever threats arise and is capable of taking the fight to the enemy and winning. In order to do so, it is necessary that we continue to provide the funding and tools our men and women in uniform need to do their jobs and safely return home to their families. I applaud the bravery and sacrifice our military men and women make each and every day.
