Armed Services

The military is critical to Eastern North Carolina. I am blessed and honored to represent the incredible heroes and their families stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Cherry Point Marine Corps Air Station, and Marine Corps Air Station New River. As a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, I do all I can to fight for Eastern North Carolina’s military installations and for the courageous men and women — past, present, and future — who protect our freedom.

My commitment to our service members and their families is unwavering. I have been a leader on securing pay increases, education opportunities, and better healthcare for military personnel while opposing any benefit cuts. I will always support the men and women of the military, even against the occasional injustice found in their own service. I have supported and cleared multiple officers and enlisted personnel when they were falsely accused of wrongdoing by their chains of command. I will continue to stand with the men and women in uniform, because they stand up for us.
