We are free because of the people who have stepped up to keep us free.  Our military veterans must be honored and our commitment to them met.  As the son of a father who spent his career in the Air Force and a mom who followed him around the world, I personally understand the sacrifice they and others who served made to keep us free.  I will be an advocate for our veterans in the senate.  They kept their word to us and we shall keep ours to them.  I will strongly support the men and women who serve us as peace officers, firefighters and first responders. You place yourself in harm’s way on our behalf, I will advocate on your behalf in the senate.
