Issue Position: The War on Terror and Maintaining a Strong National Defense
As an officer in the U.S. Navy Reserve currently serving on active duty in Iraq, Charlie Summers is committed to defending our freedom and fighting the war on terror. He knows first-hand that America must fully support service members and their families not only while they are on active duty but, just as important, we must be there for them and their families when they come home. As a member of Congress, Charlie will work tirelessly for our veterans and will fight to make certain that the number one issue for veteran's, VA health care, is fully funded. Also, Charlie will make it a top priority to serve on the House Armed Services Committee to protect defense jobs in our
Bath and Kittery shipyards and to make certain that America's military has the resources necessary to defend our great Nation.
