With our large military presence, Florida is a key contributor to our nation’s defense. As a veteran who served 26 years as a Naval Aviator, I am proud to serve our state on the House Armed Services Committee. I understand all too well the challenges facing our men and women in uniform, as well as what is required to complete the mission. I know the risks America faces every day from our enemies abroad. I will work hard to ensure our military has the tools needed to keep Americans safe.
