September 17, 2019 Press Release
North Carolina, the nation’s most-military friendly state, knows well that our most important national security asset are the men and women who defend our freedom. I look forward to working on the NDAA conference to ensure that the final legislation upholds our commitments to our service members and their families, while fully equipping our military to complete their missions and advance our interests abroad.
June 20, 2019 Press Release
The Bladensburg Peace Cross is a sacred symbol of sacrifice, love and honor, built by Americans who chose to pay tribute to the brave World War I heroes of their community. As an amicus curiae of this case, I am thankful the Supreme Court has overturned the faulty ruling of the Fourth Circuit, protected religious liberty, and allowed the cross to remain as tribute to the 49 American names it holds, each who laid down their life for our freedom. At a time when seemingly so few understand the realities of war and the cost of our freedom and prosperity, we should be doing more to honor the bravery of our men and women in uniform, not tearing down the symbols of their valor.

Today is what truly makes this job incredible.

Over the past two months, I was fortunate enough to get to know World War II Veteran John Del Roso who currently resides at Heritage Greens Senior Living Facility.

He is a combat-hardened war hero who saw plenty of action in Europe, most notably at Omaha Beach and the Battle of the Bulge. I can’t even begin to fathom what he went through.
