As a retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel and Combat Veteran, Dick Muri will preserve America’s military strength and oppose carelessly committing the U.S. to war. He’s seen firsthand the impact that long deployments overseas have on our fighting men and women and their families.
Muri favors a timely withdrawal from Afghanistan.
Muri opposes major cuts to national defense, but will work to cut wasteful spending from the defense budget. He opposes Congress’ thoughtless plan to waste tax payer money on a second engine for the F-35 and will apply this same commonsense to future defense procurement decisions.
There are brave men and women that fight daily to preserve the freedoms that we, in America, enjoy. For that, they deserve the honor and respect they are due. We must ensure they have access to proper benefits for themselves and their families, never worrying if they are protected. Our veterans deserve nothing less.
