Our men and women fighting overseas and those here at home deserve all the respect, honor, and support that we can give them. That's why I have been a constant advocate for getting our troops on the ground the tools they need to succeed and complete their mission.
It is incredibly important to the United States to maintain a strong, robust military that can meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. I have had the privilege to meet with our generals and leaders at Fort Leavenworth, Fort Riley, and Forbes Field on numerous occasions. Kansas has some of the finest military installations in the United States. As we continue to fight a multi front war in Iraq, Afghanistan, and around the world, I will continue to do anything and everything I can to equip and train our military men and women and will never stop working on their behalf.
