When the Founding Fathers drafted our Constitution charging the Congress to "provide for the common defense," the most complex piece of military equipment in the Continental Army was the single-shot musket. Today, our armed forces rely on the most sophisticated equipment in the world - much of it developed at Fort Monmouth here in New Jersey's 12th Congressional District - to help protect you and me from those who would do us harm. But "providing for the common defense" involves far more than simply buying hi-tech hardware; it requires recruiting, retaining, and caring for the men and women who protect America everyday. Below you'll find a summary of what I've tried to do to help those who wear the uniform of our country, along with links to other useful information on this topic.
