In addition to honoring the commitments we've made to our veterans, I support growing and modernizing America's Armed Forces to ensure we are prepared for future strategic challenges such as thwarting Iran's nuclear ambitions, facing down the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, combating Islamic extremism and standing strong with Israel.

As a result of my service in the U.S. Air Force from 1987 to 1992, the Air National Guard from 1992-1995, and as a Special Agent with the United States Secret Service, I am appalled at President Obama's efforts to dramatically weaken our defense capabilities. Our nation's first priority must always be to defend America and our allies. South Carolinians can be assured I will continue to fight for a strong military and embrace President Reagan's philosophy of "peace through strength."
