Lee Zeldin on Homeland Security

 

 


Freedom is because America's military is strong

Fighting for You: Protecting our Citizens: America is the beacon of freedom because America's military is strong. Our foreign policy and military decisions have profound consequences for our national security, for the security of our allies, and for the global economy.

As a proud veteran who appreciates the sacrifices all veterans have made to protect our freedoms, I not only look out for their interests, I fight hard every day to make sure they have everything they need and deserve.
