Military and Homeland Security

John is very proud of our servicemembers who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Once our servicemembers have completed their missions, he believes it is time to safely bring our troops home. He appreciates the hard work and sacrifices our men and women in uniform have made to establish a foundation that we can diplomatically and politically build on to work towards peace in these unstable nations. John will continue to advocate for the best equipment and body armor for American troops.

John strongly supports continuing to fight terrorist networks in the Middle East and around the world. In a post-9/11 world, it is important that the United States has the resources and tools necessary to combat terrorism through intelligence and military operations.

John will continue to fight for the benefits these men and women deserve for their dedication and sacrifice. He is a proud supporter of the new GI Bill for the 21st Century, which will provide free tuition and housing to veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Recently, McGuire Air Force Base, Fort Dix, and Lakehurst Naval Air Engineering Station converged to form Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. In addition to the new Joint Base, BRAC 2005 will bring additional personnel, units and associated construction projects to New Jersey's 3rd District creating economic growth.

John is also working with Lockheed Martin to ensure that the Moorestown facility continues to receive adequate funding for their projects. Lockheed Martin is the largest private employer in New Jersey's 3rd District.
