As a pilot and officer in the Arizona Air National Guard, I’ve been fortunate to serve alongside the finest Americans who deserve our undying support as a nation. We must ensure that our fighting forces are always equipped with the best and newest technology. We must treat our armed forces members with the utmost professionalism when it comes to pay and overall work expectations. Morale amongst those who protect us is key in maintaining our fighting force. I have witnessed firsthand what poor policy decisions and lack of strong leadership can and have done to those who serve.
