Our service members at Fort Bragg

This weekend I visited Fort Bragg, the largest U.S. military installation in terms of personnel. The base is home to a wide array of military commands, special operations forces, and other units. These include the "All-American" 82nd Airborne Division, whose members served in the D-Day invasion at Normandy, the Battle of the Bulge, and other historic military campaigns before, during, and after World War II. Thank you to the garrison commander, Col. Kyle Reed, who is pictured below, for leading my tour of the base.  

My visit reminded me once again of the tremendous debt of gratitude every American owes to the members of our armed forces, who sacrifice every day to keep our nation safe and secure.
