The primary constitutional obligation of the federal government is to protect and defend the people, land, and resources of the United States of America.  As a United States Senator, I am committed to maintaining a well-trained, fully-equipped military.   I will do everything in my power to ensure that our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and national guardsmen and women have the resources they need to carry out and complete their missions.
