I am grateful for the people who serve in the United States armed forces. They have sacrificed time with their families and personal comfort, putting themselves in harm’s way to protect us from our enemies. We need to continue the American tradition of a strong military, one focused on freedom. America should continue to be a beacon of light in the world, a country that can boldly defend liberty, a country that refuses to plunder other nations. We need to ensure that America honors and cares for those who have risked all in service to our country. That means top notch medical care for our troops, honor, and the respect that comes from heartfelt gratitude. We need to make sure that our troops are only deployed from a position of strength, where the objective is to defend and protect the people of the United States.
We should not take the use of our military force lightly, it should be our last resort, with diplomacy being first.
We have so many who have sacrificed their health, we should strive to improve their medical care, commensurate with the service they have so freely given to this nation.
Every day it is like you are putting your life on the line, even when you are training.
The military is the hardest profession. Sometimes people take it for granted that it will always be there.
With the upsides and the downsides of politics, we still have the strongest military on the planet, and that is a beautiful thing.
