The first responsibility of the U.S. government is to keep our country and citizens safe. I am grateful for the incredible work that the men and women who serve our nation in uniform do at F.E. Warren Air Force Base each and every day. I am a staunch supporter of our nuclear triad, and proud of the role that the F.E. Warren Air Force Base plays in our national defense. The transformation that has occurred at the Veterans Affairs Department in recent years has been essential to improving the quality and timeliness of services and I pledge to hold the department accountable for their actions taking care of the men and women who have given so much to keep us safe.
