Bob Flanders on Homeland Security

 

 


Commit the resources needed for military preparedness

There are four overriding national security themes that need to be addressed. They are as follows:
  • Cyber-attack prevention.
  • Global economic stress and the debate between nationalism and globalism.
  • Secure infrastructure in the homeland, including borders, ports, airspace, waterways, and critical infrastructure such as airports, power grids, and transportation networks.
  • Intelligence; every successful military and counter-terrorism operation relies on good intelligence.
  • Military preparedness; the U.S. military must commit the resources needed to deal with multiple trouble spots from North Korea to the Middle East.Rhode Island needs a U.S. Senator that stands up for the safety and security of our country.

    Operation Stand Down: support services for veterans

    Our veterans have fought for us, we need to fight for them. Spent the day today at Operation Stand Down Rhode Island in Cumberland, a tremendous organization that provides essential services to our veterans in need. Please stop by this weekend and support R.I. vets. God bless our veterans and the United States of America.

    [Organization and event description from OSDRI.org]: OSDRI sets up a military style encampment and invites service providers from across the state to join us to deliver life essential services to veterans in need. In 2017, approximately 500 homeless and at-risk veterans attended Stand Down Weekend. Additionally, more than 200 volunteers and over fifty nonprofit, state and federal agencies came together at the outreach event to provide the veterans with services including housing assistance, medical, dental, benefit claims, mental health care, legal assistance, DMV services, financial planning, employment and training resources, basic human needs assistance and much more.
