Ted Yoho on Homeland Security

 


Every single legislator needs to support our military

I believe America still has the greatest military in the world, supported by brave men and women in uniform. Unfortunately, our troops have not received the level of support they need when they return home. Further, America's weakened foreign policy has resulted in our drifting away from our strongest allies such as Israel.

Solution: Every single legislator needs to support our military. If we are to expect our troops to protect America at all costs, then we must guarantee to do likewise. By allocating the proper resources to our troops we can maximize their protection while serving our nation. We must also care for them after they complete their service. We should recognize the sacrifice that military families make while a loved one serves this nation. Finally, we need to stand with our allies and never waiver in our support.
