I am proud to represent the thousands of soldiers, and their families, stationed at Fort Campbell, base for the 101st Airborne Division, the 160th Special Operations Aviation Command, and the 5th Special Forces Group. I am committed to ensuring our brave men and women in uniform have the funding and resources they need to complete our missions abroad and protect Americans here at home.
I have been pleased to help secure nearly $1 billion in military approrpriations for our troops serving at Fort Campbell. More than $90 million of this funding has been used for critical military construction and family housing projects at Fort Campbell and millions more for weapons programs to enhance the military readiness of soldiers at the base. I have consistently voted to increase defense spending to include significant pay increases and benefits for active-duty and retired military members. I will continue to use my position in Congress to provide all that is necessary for the military personnel stationed in the First Congressional District.
