There’s only one story I want to focus on today. Our men and women deploy to fight and win the combat engagements of this nation. We know the harms and dangers of the combat zone, as well do our families. This is a volunteer military, so no one’s pressed into service for this nation. No one’s forced into combat service. And consider that in these past decade plus, there’s only been one of those brave men and women who actually deserted while on the battlefield.
But when we bring our military home, the expectation is that they find respite with their families. That’s why we call it “home station.” And our reserve component brothers and sisters in arms have training facilities that are part of the civilian community — not so sequestered away like an active duty station.
Sadly, on Thursday we were reminded — for the fourth time, that our men and women in uniform are no longer safe in America.
