I believe in peace through strength, the idea that America's military is essential to our protection against foreign enemies, and projecting power prevents threats from materializing in the first place. On the House Armed Services Committee, I am a proud member of the Subcommittees on Seapower and Projection Forces, as well as Readiness, overseeing many advanced weapons systems and troop preparedness. Tennessee's Aerospace and Defense Technology Corridor, including Fort Campbell, Arnold Air Force Base, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and even Redstone Arsenal in Alabama, is a high-tech research center and important job engine. Making sure brave Tennesseans have the best tools to defend our country is my mission in Congress.
