A Gold Star spouse here in the Tenth District was finally recognized many years after her husband was killed while he was serving in the Navy during WWII. This story is a wonderful example of a western North Carolina community coming together to honor and recognize Margaret Treadway and her loyal service as a Gold Star Wife.

It is the responsibility of Congress to provide for a strong national defense and ensure the brave men and women who serve in the U.S. military have the tools and resources they need to keep our country safe. The bill House Democrats forced through today fails to fulfill this vital responsibility. This year’s National Defense Authorization Act—normally a bipartisan bill to support our troops—calls for over $1.2 billion in military personnel funding cuts, rejects key defense initiatives that are critical to our ability to deter Russia and China, blocks President Trump's efforts to help solve the crisis at our southern border, and includes other provisions that damage our national security.
