GUEST COLUMN: Taking crucial steps to support our troops

As a South Carolinian, member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and someone with loved ones who served in the military, I believe that supporting our nation’s troops should be our highest priority. I am to advocate for, and support, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019.
The act funds critical military readiness initiatives and construction projects in South Carolina.
For years our military has had to plan for the future around artificial budget caps that not only hurt readiness, but did little to decrease the deficit.
