For 10 years I've served in the United States Air Force Reserves, and during that time completed a tour of duty in Iraq. I have firsthand knowledge of the issues and problems our soldiers face while both serving in a war zone and returning home because I've been there. America has the greatest military in the world, and I will fight every day to make sure that legacy continues and our freedoms are protected. That includes providing the necessary funding to get the job done while consistently protecting our troops. We must ensure America never bows down to her enemies.
