Protect the Homeland
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, and North Korea 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 military fight constant and evolving threats, and they must have the resources they need to keep us safe. Marsha supported a 2.6 percent pay raise for our troops – that’s the highest increase in nine years. When Fort Campbell nearly lost vital funding, she fought for them and helped keep their training and maintenance programs for the 101st Airborne fully funded. Our promise to them does not end when they return home, and she will continue to fight to take care of those who have taken care of us.
