I think that the most fundamental purpose of our government is to keep us safe. I come from a military family. My husband is a combat veteran. I feel very firmly that we need to support our men and women in uniform. Without security, we can't have prosperity. Without security, we can't have freedom. That is why I focused on this in the Armed Services Committee and the Chair of the Readiness Subcommittee. I know that to keep America safe we need to be vigilant, and be sure we are serving those who defend our nation.
