Congressman J. Gresham Barrett (SC-03) released the following statement regarding his vote on the H.R. 3326 Department of Defense Appropriations Act of 2010:
"I have had the honor to serve my country in the Army, and while I was fortunate enough to serve during a time of peace, I still understand how important it is that we support the men and women of our Armed Forces.
"I voted in favor of H.R. 3326 because this legislation will ensure that our nation's soldiers have the resources they need in order to succeed in their endeavors such as our current mission in Afghanistan.
"Our Armed Forces deserve our utmost gratitude for their acts of bravery and their commitment to protecting the American people and therefore, I remain committed to supporting them."
