The most dangerous world I’ve ever lived in.

Our world is more dangerous today than any other time in my lifetime.

Our men and women in uniform are constantly facing emerging threats from Iran, North Korea, China and Russia.

Now, more than ever, it’s important that we ensure our armed forces have all the resources they need to protect Americans at home and abroad.

I’m proud to share that this week the Senate passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

This year’s NDAA includes a 3.1 percent pay raise for our troops –the highest in a decade, improves military housing, promotes military spouse employment, creates the U.S. Space Force, keeps the Department of Defense audit on track for a second year, and includes dozens of priorities important to Georgia’s military communities. 

Passing this bill is a critical step in rebuilding our military after years of disinvestment, and it ensures Georgia will continue to play an integral role in President Trump’s National Defense Strategy.
