Defense and National Security

Defense and National Security

Ensuring the strength and readiness of the United States Armed Forces is one of the primary responsibilities of Congress.

We are living in perilous times, and I will never underestimate the seriousness of the threats we face from foreign nations that seek to harm Americans, such as terrorist organizations, including the Islamic State and Hezbollah.

In the 21st Century, these threats rarely appear in the form of armored vehicles and regular armies – instead choosing to attack America and its allies with guerilla tactics and cyber warfare. A strong America must always maintain its conventional military edge, while continuing to invest in emerging technologies to confront our opponents on new frontiers.
