Supporting our Military and National Defense
We owe and immeasurable debt to our active duty military who stand in harms way to protect our freedoms, and all the veterans who have honorably served our nation. That means keeping the promises we make to them when they sign up to serve. In the State Senate, Dan took action to help North Carolinians who served our country in uniform. Among other reforms, he voted to protect Medicaid, ensure in-state tuition, and create job opportunities for our veterans, increase access to health care, exempt military retirement from the state income tax, and fund programs to help veterans in crisis.
There’s always more that can be done for those who put themselves in harms way to protect our freedom. And Dan will do even more in Congress. Maintaining a strong national defense is a Constitutional mandate that must be upheld and, I believe, a moral obligation that must be met by Congress. Our elected leaders must follow the counsel of military leaders and make sure they have the resources and tools they need to protect our shining city on a hill and uphold the freedom and liberty that has made the United States the great hope of mankind.
