People willing to perform service in the military and wear a uniform bearing the flag of our nation is the single reason our nation is so free today and ripe with potential for the future. The Republican Party wholeheartedly supports the efforts to fight our enemies foreign and domestic, and our national security is of the utmost importance in Republican efforts to develop, maintain, and ensure peace for our country.

Current and prior members of America’s military have our admiration and support, and our nation owes them better than our current epidemic a weak economy and high unemployment, especially among our newest young veterans. Our principles of fairness demand that our veterans receive the best medical care, training, and a lifelong commitment of respect from our nation.
