Our world is confronted by constant threats — from ISIS terrorists to North Korean ballistic missile launches to Iranian nuclear ambitions; the list goes on and on.
Facing these dangers, the resource that sets the United States apart is our military. The honorable men and women of our armed forces risk their lives each and every day. America unquestionably has the greatest military force in the world, but our men and women in uniform face a different adversary at home: shrinking defense funding.
We MUST make sure our military has the resources, equipment and personnel to get the job done. We depend on them to protect us.
A new problem can happen anywhere in the world at a moment’s notice. We cannot afford to appear weak or unprepared. We will only be as safe as our military is strong.
It’s time that we make national security a national priority again.
