U.S. service-members: Our nation's #1 defense asset

Last week I traveled to military facilities in several areas of the United States to get briefings on military, intelligence, and missile-defense issues. I spoke to officers, junior enlisted service-members, and customs and border protection officials to get a comprehensive review of the country’s defense posture. I also had the opportunity to pay tribute to a military intelligence professional—who was a family friend—who lost his life in service of this nation. I am constantly amazed at the selfless dedication of American service-members and law enforcement officials—please remember them in your thoughts and prayers.
