Marsha Blackburn Report: Supporting Tennessee Troops, Bolstering National Defense

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Thousands of servicemen and women call Tennessee home and when I accepted the role of Senator, I took on a special responsibility to look after and take care of each and every one of them.

As a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I have included language in the National Defense Authorization Act to support mission-critical projects to expand high-skilled work in Tennessee and empower the future of Tennessee’s military installations, such as in Fort Campbell, Arnold Engineering and Development Complex, and in McGhee Tyson Airfield.

We must ensure that our troops have what they need to defend our nation and prepare for the future of warfare.

Senator Marsha Blackburn.
