Tennessee National GuardNashville, TN – The National Guard celebrates its 384th birthday on December 13th, 2020. This date is etched on the cornerstone of our Nation as it represents the first moment our society took its defense into our own hands.

It was also the first step in building a nation out of an untamed and dangerous wilderness. This date signifies the moment the Massachusetts Bay Colony organized three militia regiments to defend the colony from the growing threat of American Indian attacks. Other American colonies would follow their example and the militia would later become the basis for the Continental Army.

And instead of sending American troops to fight in endless wars or giving cash to terrorist sponsors in Iran, the United States is securing peace deals with our real allies across the Middle East, including Israel.

Healthcare Plan for All Americans

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – “If there’s one thing Americans need to know about the healthcare plan President Donald Trump unveiled last week, it’s this: The president is delivering more choice, lower costs, and better care for every American, whatever their healthcare needs or however their healthcare is paid for,” Health & Human Services Secretary Alex Azar writes in Townhall.
 
“The previous administration’s attempt to fix our healthcare system, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), focused primarily on a tiny slice of American healthcare: the individual insurance market. President Trump’s plan goes much further.”
