As a soldier that has fought on three continents, I know first hand the importance of our foreign policy and national security decisions. Whether it was leading my Infantry troops in battle or working to form nascent defense policies with the war torn governments, I can bring experience to Congress while looking out for the large number of Oklahomans and their families who serve in uniform and in our defense industry.
I have been a tireless advocate for our national defense with nationally published opinion pieces and appearances on major radio on talk shows. Having an experienced soldier’s voice to counter the poor decisions of career politicians can possibly be the difference between a good decision and one that costs lives and treasure.
I also understand the complexities of bringing divergent groups together. From negotiating with warring factions in smoke filled rooms in foreign lands to being a delegate to a United Nations Afghan Security Conference representing on the US delegation, I can bring leadership and experience to our national issues. As a member of Congress, I will fight to keep our national interests first and foremost.
