Vicki Slater on Homeland Security
Effort on home front in support of effort on battlefront
We honor all the ways that Americans serve their country: as community volunteers, as teachers, as productive business leaders & as public servants. A life is incomplete without an element of public service, but the military is special. Our veterans give
up something irreplaceable, spending years away from home and going into harm's way to preserve our most basic freedoms. Our veterans carry home to us inspiring examples of selfless sacrifice, duty and honor. Our family knows this directly: two of our
sons served in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Today's soldiers are deployed longer and more often than those of a generation ago. Maintaining an effective fighting force requires an effort on the home front in support of the effort on the battlefront.
Thousands of Mississippi military families have been denied health care because of Phil Bryant's petulant rejection of Medicaid expansion funds. I will expand health care to these military families and thousands of other Mississippians
