The first charge of the Constitution is to provide for the national defense, and Marsha takes that responsibility seriously. She knows the United States must be strong enough to prevent countries like Russia, China, North Korea and Iran from pushing us and our allies around. We need to draw firm lines and show them that America is not to be trifled with. Our men and women in the military fight constant and evolving threats and they must have the resources they need to keep us safe. Marsha helped secure our troops the highest pay increase in almost a decade. Our promise to them does not end when they return home, and she is continuing to fight to take care of those who have taken care of us.
