I will never forget how I felt on 9/11. That day motivated me to serve our nation in combat. Watching Joe Biden squander the sacrifices we made with the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, I knew it was time to serve our country once again. The politicians in Washington are more concerned with their political careers than securing America’s future. They’ve empowered our adversaries like China, opened our borders, shut down American energy production, and created economic uncertainty. We need to fund our military and stand strong against China, secure our southern border, and once again, make America energy dominant and independent.
