Marsha Blackburn Report: This Week From Washington – June 23rd, 2019

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – This week, I focused my energy on the work we’re doing in the Senate to provide for our military, and our veterans.

Service men and women face increasingly sophisticated and lethal threats, and I’m leading the charge to ensure they are given the tools they need to fight the good fight overseas, and are taken care of when they return home.

Protecting Freedom For Our Next Generation

On Tuesday, I spoke on the Senate floor and told my colleagues that as we consider the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), we must recognize that our nation is faced with new, sophisticated threats. We must be prepared for both traditional as well as new emerging types of warfare.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
