Washington, D.C.—Congressman Todd Rokita says he is helping rebuild our military and keeping promises made to the American people. “I believe we have the best military in the world and now our troops will have the resources, care and pay they need and deserve to protect us” said Congressman Todd Rokita. “Our families need to feel safe at home and abroad especially as our nation continues to face additional threats from ISIS, Iran, and North Korea. With the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, I am making sure our military is ready to protect you and your family.”
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) will allow the Air Force, Army, Navy, Army Guard and Reserve, Naval and Air Reserve, and Air Guard to increase in size to continue protecting our nation after nearly a decade of serious neglect by the Obama Administration. This bill will also increase training opportunities for our military, modernize the U.S.’ nuclear weapons stockpile, missile defense, and military vehicles, and it prevents detainees from being transferred from Guantanamo Bay to the United States.
“The National Defense Authorization Act is an opportunity to make sure our men and women in uniform have the resources they need. I am proud to be fighting for those who put everything on the line for our families and our freedom”
